What's up with Food-News

hyperbowler May 1, 2014 04:55 PM

There's been some good material on the SF and LA Food-News sections during April. But, while it still exists for NY food news, there's nothing pointing at highlights from the SF and LA regional boards.

Is Chow going to write about interesting things on the SF and LA boards in the future, or is Food-News taking a new direction? Heh, it's conceivable nothing worth highlighting was posted in April on the SF or LA boards.

    Everything points to the fact that CHOW has slashed many/most features from their site. Maybe going out of business ?

      It feels that way, doesn't it?

        I've been very happy with the editorial content-- the Bay Area ones have covered a lot of businesses I'm interested in.

        Perhaps I should re-ask my question though. I realize that changes are brewing. My question is whether those changes are going to be integrating contributions from the local boards (e.g. "overheard on the boards") or developing more of a unique voice for Chow.com and its writers.

        A "we can't tell you just yet" answer would be fine if that's the case :-)

          We can't tell you just yet ;) but stay tuned!
