As Dan Kennedy notes on his Media Nation blog, two such publications¬†went live at the end of last month. One founding publisher is male; the other is female. Not exactly a scientific sample, I know, but it tracks with the preliminary results of my own research which show that hyperlocal leadership comes the closest to gender parity.¬†
