Shaw Media today launched a digital local news network to provide northern Illinois readers with increased immediacy. The www.ShawLocal.com network is available on app stores and includes all of Shaw Media’s local news coverage from its 53 Illinois newspapers and magazines.

Also included in the Shaw Local app are Friday Night Drive, which covers prep football across the region, and Starved Rock Country, which promotes tourism in the greater La Salle County area.

“We launched Shaw Local with new technology that improves the reader experience, and allows our reporters to get news up on the site faster,” said Tom Shaw, Shaw Media VP and chief product officer.

For a limited time, all content is available on the Shaw Local app. Existing subscribers can now also access all content across the Shaw Local News Network.
