They Like Us, They Really Like Us
Uptown Update is extremely honored to be ranked as the Number 1 Online Neighborhood News Site in Chicago by the Community Media Workshop, funded by The Chicago Community Trust and The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. It came as a complete surprise, and here's what they had to say about us:
We are pleased to get high marks for "reach" and "engagement," because those high scores are thanks to you, our readers, without whom we wouldn't be doing any of this.
We are also delighted to be in the company of so many of our neighboring news sources, such as the Edgeville Buzz, the Center Square Journal, and the Welles Park Bulldog. North Side rules!
You can see the entire report here, at The New News 2012, and a press release about it here, at Chicago Community Trust.
