More evidence of hyperlocal gender parity

The post-Patch fallout is far from over, but there’s some anecdotal evidence here in New England that former Patch staffers are launching indy news sites. As Dan Kennedy notes on his Media Nation blog, two such publications went live at the end of last month. One founding publisher is male; the other is female. Not exactly a scientific sample, I know, but it tracks with the preliminary results of my own research which show that hyperlocal leadership comes the closest to gender parity.
