[T]he Knight Digital Media Center’s Michele McLellan — also a fellow at the University of Missouri’s Reynolds Journalism Institute — has a mind-blowingly thorough taxonomy of local news organizations across the country.

“As a fellow at the Reynolds Journalism Institute in 2009, Michele McLellan created a list of promising local news sites. She also developed broad categories for classifying what is emerging on the local news landscape … Among those categories, Block by Block activities are designed with four site types in mind: Community, Local aggregator, Micro local and Local niche. In addition, Michele created criteria for the list that are designed to identify sites that are working on all three legs of the sustainability stool: Content, community engagement and revenue.” Source: Block by Block
