Creative Loafing World Takeover

Okay, so it isn’t a world takeover, but Atlanta-based Creative Loafing, Inc. has acquired alternative weeklies in both Chicago and Washington DC markets. That’s pretty big news for the little alternative weekly started here in the ATL in the ’70s. (Of course, is already on the web in both Chicago and DC.)

You can read all about it on The Fresh Loaf. Congratulations to our little hometown paper; This is good news for alternative publishing.

Thanks to CL’s own Andisheh for the heads up.

    I don’t know nothing!

    My tip to Annie was just a link to the press release.

    I just got back from Chicago, and I remember being surprised to discover how bad their alternative weekly was.

    Hopefully CL will be a change for the better.
