Beyond the zipcode

The Cincinnati Enquirer (Gannett) has set up home pages for news from each community in its market. They are divided into newsroom-produced items and reader-generated items. Producers or editors prime the pump with contests (i.e., holiday lights). A list of all the communities served is here. Gannett listed m.e. Hollis Towns, among 15 selected for leadeship awards, saying, "Hollis was involved in the newspaper’s efforts to expand Get
, the launch of 184 Ohio/Indiana community Web sites and the
launch of the Data Desk."
