    Anybody know if there are any plans to expand beyond the five cities now online?

    I've heard rumors, although from non-ESPN people, that they're at least looking to start up a Phoenix site.

    It was my understanding, that when Tom Pelissaro went to ESPN AM1500 in Minneapolis, it was because they would be rolling out a site.

    everything I have heard from espn employees is that no new rollouts are planned until they figure out how to make $$$$ from them

    Yup, hearing the same thing. These things are on hold for a bit. No new ones have been announced. Last one to come out was New York in April.

    Are the city editions not financially successful? From what I've heard, it seems they're at least drawing traffic.

    I've heard the same from espn people who are in the already-established city sites.

    After what went down in Pittsburgh last week, I can't imagine there'll be one here for some time. Seems foolish to get rid of the radio presence if they are, unless the intent is to entirely re-vamp it on the FM side down the road with new personnel when the site launches.
