Richmond's community journalism hotbed

At Part One of a two-part series about Richmond's burgeoning community blog scene entitled “A Hotbed of Citizen Journalism,” went up today. The article cites an email from a VCU journalism professor, Jeff South, which was published at the Fan District Hub on April 5th.

South was in the midst of listening to a presentation on participatory media during "Media Re:Public" a conference convened by the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society when he learned that Richmond "by far and away…ranked No. 1 for citizen journalism Web sites."
