The City Wire!

My old boss, Michael Tilley, sent me an e-mail a little bit ago stating a new Internet-based publication, called The City Wire, has been launched.

Tilley was the business editor when I worked for The Morning News, a publication based in Springdale that covered news in Northwest Arkansas. He was also the business editor of the publication's sister paper, The Times-Record in Fort Smith. Both papers are owned by Stephens Media, which controls quite a few papers here in Arkansas.

Stephens Media has been laying off a lot of people this year. It seems that the current economic climate is as rough on the newspaper business as it is on other industries.

Tilley is the editor of the aforementioned City Wire and the publication is focused on news from the Fort Smith and River Valley areas of the state. I'm going to keep an eye on that publication and I hope some of you will, too.
