Big Media Matt goes wrong here. Sports coverage is/would be a critical element in any quality local news organization. Sure the basic stuff like scores and standings don't need duplication, but sports is a local story. More than that, sports teams are key elements of any city's core identity and coverage of them is precisely the kind of thing which can help create interesting and compelling news for people.

Quality local coverage can stand out by helping to provide a unifying narrative about a place. Merge some aspects of tabloid style with quality reporting.
