Steve Rhodes has resigned from NBCChicago.com, where he, also the editor and publisher of the struggling Beachwood Reporter, has posted three stories a day for the past year or so. “It wasn’t necessarily a lot of money, but this was what really paid my rent every month,” Rhodes tells me, “and it was good for me to have something i could do for a couple of hours a day. I’m leading a rather meager existence, so this was good thing for me.”
