Chicago Current Goes Live

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Nov 9, 2009 10:40PM


Chicago Current, the successor to now-folded local news website Chi-Town Daily News, has gone live and you can read the web-edition here. There's not a whole heck of a lot there and some of the stories seem a bit stale - the CTA budget story doesn't offer anything new and Geoff Dougherty's op-ed about Daley seems is just managing to catch up to where several other outlets went a month ago when the city's Olympic bid failed. But there are a few pieces worth reading through and CTDN featured some great content that was hard to find anywhere else, so we're giving Current the benefit of the doubt as it is, after all, just starting up. And there's still the print issue to consider.

Speaking of the print issue, you can send in your email address for more information when home-delivery of the print edition becomes available. We've heard rumblings that the print edition is also available at a few places around town, but haven't managed to track down exactly where yet.
