When the Chattanooga Times merged with the Chattanooga News-Free Press (yes, really), Chattanooga lost something.

Enter Chattarati: "... communal narcissism for the scenic city." Looks like a decent attempt to bring back... well... if not journalism, something, in Chattanooga.

Thank you Dan for the link and comment. It's a bunch of us who have been around the blogging and alt-weekly scene this decade. We have a bunch of interesting interviews and ideas in the queue. We want to be a little more "open" and extended than the local news, who honestly have to worry more about ad space than providing news.

Yeah, buy tom kunesh a beer sometime and ask him about the ad space versus news conundrum that the publishers of "City Beat" faced way back when.
