History[edit] ChicagoNow was launched in August 2009.[5][6] Its launch coincided with the Tribune company's bankruptcy.[7] As a newspaper-run blogging community, with the initial tagline "a blog by and for locals", it represented what one observer called "a new value proposition for newspapers".[7] ChicagoNow utilized Movable Type as its blogging platform when it first launched but switched to WordPress in 2011.[8] The website of the Tribune daily RedEye, which later moved to its own domain, was initially hosted on ChicagoNow.[9]

Reception[edit] In April 2010, the World Editors Forum described ChicagoNow as a "hyperlocal blog network" that has "a personal quality that many larger newspapers lack."[10] In September 2010, Time Out Chicago criticized ChicagoNow for hosting an unidentified police officer in what they called "a hate-filled, racist rant by blogger Joe the Cop, entitled The ghetto shooting template, for three days and counting now."[11] ChicagoNow removed the posts in question, stating that while they don't edit posts, they reserve the right to remove them.[12]
