Mike Fourcher, publisher of Center Square Journal in Chicago, announced today he and 20 other publishers have formed the Independent Local Online News Publishers Trade Group (unofficial, working title) during talks at this year’s Block by Block Community News Summit.

Fourcher said the group has formed a steering committee, but is in very early stages and had little other information to release. Contact group executive secretary Fourcher for more information at (773) 328-8451 or mike@brownlinemedia.com.
