DescriptionNot long ago Richmond VA was one of the largest US cities without a business journal. That changed on January 1 2008 the day that local online startup Richmond BizSense ran its first story. The site which subsists almost entirely on local advertising and claims to have enjoyed three straight years of profitability combines a web editorial strategy with a fairly traditional local news ad model—a hybrid which in Richmond at least is showing promise in its effort to support original news content in the digital age.
