AOL Huffington Post Media Group says it plans to launch 33 new Patch sites covering Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina:
The 33 new primary state sites aims to provide a platform for citizens, candidates, and influencers to discuss local issues and events, including the impact of national and state issues on the local landscape heading into the 2012 election season. Patch’s journalists will cover issues on the sites and the hyperlocal news sites will also aim to serve as a non-partisan forum.
No word on what specific localities will be covered. The Patch website has a list of New Hampshire sites (described as coming soon), but no listings for Iowa and South Carolina.
