Rogers Park has more reporters then it knows to do with these days. We have two heavyweights, Benjamin Woodard and Craig Gernhardt. B. Woodard is newer to the Rogers Park scene but is doing a good job covering coffee shop openings, restaurant news and community pieces like the abandoned portable classroom. Broken Heart can't be beat for up to the minute crime coverage. However Broken Heart's soul searching coverage of the Murder Tree was very incisive, informative and touching.
Head to head though Broken Heart coverage of crime news can't be beat. No one is going to look at DNAinfo.com for updates on breaking crime stories. Not so with local news leader Broken Heart of Rogers Park. The latest story of a troubling sexual assault by where the new bike racks are going in at Lunt and Glenwood has everyone upset. DNAinfo.com did a competent job covering the story after the Broken Heart did and had no further updates. Broken Heart used fresh photos of the scene that day and provided information first and continued to update everyone throughout the day. Which is important because we want to be safe and don't want harm to come to anyone in Rogers Park.
Overall DNAinfo provides great stories about people in the community and general neighborhood news. But Broken Heart proves that a blog provides superior coverage for breaking stories regarding crime where updates are key to being informed up to the minute.
