This brief study investigates the influence of Internet websites operated by independent non-traditional media outlets with a Chicago Illinois focus. In order to do this, we characterize the content, traffic, and audience composition of 13 different independent Chicago-specific websites, 7 of which were listed by Tribune in their October 23rd filing with the FCC, and compare them with 11 websites operated by traditional media companies based in the Chicago area.
