MetroBeat Editor Announces New Alt-Weekly

In April 2005, AAN News reported the closing of MetroBeat in Greenville, S.C. At the time, Editor James Shannon pledged to continue the publication as an online magazine, and he's made good on that pledge. Now he's about to give Greenville an old-fashioned, ink-on-paper alt-weekly once again. From Shannon's announcement at "Since the demise of MetroBeat ... we have continued the conversation with our readers through this website. That will not change, but now there will be The Beat, an actual newspaper you can hold in your hands." It's due to hit streets July 19.
