Local sites[edit]

ESPN started local chapters of its website in response to the decline of local sports coverage available as newspapers continue to go out of business across the country.[8] Each page covers local professional and college teams, hiring locally known writers, and in some cases making use of the city's ESPN Radio affiliate. In markets where the ABC Owned Television Stations owns a station, their sports coverage is incorporated with the corresponding ESPN local site. Some local sites have expanded into high school sports coverage.
