Former Tampa pubcaster heads online news venture

Another new media site has sprouted, this time in Florida, reports Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. The online paper, 83 Degrees, is published by Detroit's Issue Media, which has created several other online pubs. It's edited by Diane Egner, former content director at Tampa NPR affiliate WUSF. Local governments, universities and corporations are funding the effort. "“If you’re watching PBS, you know there are certain underwriters for certain programs," Egner told . Each of our partners is underwriting specific issues that we cover.” The site's coverage will include the new economy, innovations, investments, the environment.
