Dubbed the Newspaper Project, the grassroots effort includes the CEO and publisher of Philadelphia Media Holdings, Brian P. Tierney. Beginning Monday, print and online ads will appear in Advertising Age, The Inquirer, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and more than 100 other newspapers.

Local ownership of The Inquirer was described as an experiment in some stories that detailed this week's sale of this newspaper, the Daily News, and Philly.com to their parent company's creditors. But local ownership isn't an experiment. It's a tradition as old as this nation, and it remained prevalent until post-World War II America sprouted the voracious media chains that gobbled up newspapers from sea to shining sea. It was good to see local ownership return to Philadelphia after a long absence.
