We’re very pleased to have been recognized by the Community Media Workshop as among the top Chicago news sites in the Specialty News category in its NEW News 2012 Report. The report was funded in part by a grant from the MacArthur Foundation.
We ranked #7 in that category, and were the only real estate site to achieve any recognition. Our community engagement score was on par with the Chicago Tribune and Crain’s Chicago Business, both of which ranked in the Citywide News category. Those sites had audience reach scores of 25 and 24, respectively, while ours was 20 – very respectable, considering YoChicago’s narrow focus on real estate topics.
