CANADALAND

Is local media doomed? We speak to three entrepreneurs who are making a go of it with three very different models.

 

Dave Bidini publishes the West End Phoenix, a recently-launched, print-only monthly newspaper that covers west Toronto.

 

Jeff Elgie is the CEO of Village Media, a digital-only company that provides hyper-local news to nine small communities, mostly in Ontario.

 

Jeremy Klaszus is the founder and editor of The Sprawl, a Calgary news site that practices "pop-up journalism."
