Scaling Mt. Airy

There's a race to fill the void left in Mt. Airy, Germantown and other communities by JRC's shuttering the newspapers covering those areas.

Philly.com reports:
State rep, civics, publisher would replace shut Philly-area weeklies
"A state representative, an independent Bucks County weekly and a Mt. Airy civic group are among those working on plans to replace weekly newspapers closed by Yardley-based Journal Register Co. recently."

And that report doesn't include a private venture being explored by two people with an interest in a northwest newspaper. Note, these are not just Northwest Philadelphia papers we're talking about.

Stay tuned.
