With newspapers cutting back, ESPN is getting into the local sports business. The “Worldwide Leader in Sports” says that next month it will launch ESPNChicago.com, a Web site that will focus not only on the pro and college ranks, but also high school sports. “We plan to cover high school sports as in-depth as possible,” ESPN VP of Digital Media Marc Horine tells Broadcasting & Cable. No word yet on when the concept will be rolled out to other markets.
