To create a new, low-cost model for training citizen journalist in every neighborhood of a major city to contribute to a citywide news site

The Chi-Town Daily News will recruit and train a network of 75 citizen journalists – one in each Chicago neighborhood. The journalists will work with editors to produce a professional, comprehensive daily local news report.

Goals: “A daily online news report written by citizen journalists that has more scope and depth than the coverage you find in many large newspapers.”
