Examiner goes north

examiner_logo-headerCanadian cities Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver will get their own local Examiner news- website tomorrow October 29.

Clarity Media, the Denver based operation by billionaire Philip Anschutz, already operates more than 100 local news sites in US, and also publishes free daily newspapers in San Francisco and Washington.

The local Examiner websites use content from so-called ‘examiners’, in fact local bloggers who cover special areas in their community. These examiners are paid on basis of the online visits. Already more than 18,500 examiners are active for the 150 US operations. (Denver Business Journal)
