Sports fans will soon see bylines from rival cities in their local newspapers. Nearly 50 daily outlets have joined a content-sharing alliance to trade sports columns and stories, beginning next month, according to a report in Editor & Publisher.

Among the newspapers that will be a part of the consortium are The Plain Dealer of Cleveland; Minnesota’s Star-Tribune; The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Newspapers in Ohio and other regions are sharing content, as are long-standing competitors, such as The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun. CNN is also planning a wire service.
