Nonprofit Metropolis news site to cover Philly area
Another nonprofit news site has come online, says the Philebrity blog. Metropolis covers the Philadelphia region. According to the site, it's "dedicated to the notion that the time has come to stop worrying about the future of local journalism and to start creating it." It's a project of Tom Ferrick, a former columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer and now an instructor at Bryn Mawr College. No word on funding.
