Above are a geographic sampling of e-editions of newspapers from 2nd and 3rd tier cities in Georgia (based on population), as well as my ‘hometown’ paper in Americus, Georgia.  Full access to content on the majority of these sites is now limited by paid subscription.  Five of the sites use a subscription service called Press+.  The website designs for the Columbus and Macon newspapers are very similar.  The Americus print newspaper is published twice a week, as more content is moving to the e-edition.  Most of the websites advertise editions for PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones.

The access to and content of e-editions appears to be an evolving business model, as the economic realities of traditional print journalism and customers’ reading habits continue to shift the news from print to screen.  The influence that this move has on the ‘local’ public sphere is a question that, as of the date of this post, is itself evolving.  The ‘living’ hyperlinks will above provide a window into this evolution.
