Press gazette closes

The industry trade magazine of the, erm, newspaper industry has shut down today after 41 years (via Guy Clapperton).

Sad. End of era. Yes. Best wishes to the people struck by the redudancies.

But – do we now have room / demand for an open source Press Gazette equivalent, powered by WordPress? Am sure that people would contribute; all you’d need is a hack (or group of them) willing to put some free time in, as The World’s Leading does for the PR industry…

It wouldn’t be as thorough, but it could still be fun. Volunteers?

I am aware that there’s probably a few blogs that do stuff like this. Please point me in their direction…

Update: Ah, yes – Martin Stabe is carrying on with Press Gazette style blogging on his website. Am duly subscribed.
