Comcast (NSDQ: CMCSA) Sports Group and Sporting News are partnering to create subscription-based online news sites offering coverage and analysis of local teams and players.

It wasnít clear which will be the next regional editions to be rolled out, but Comcast said it will start the rest early next year. Each edition will sport a local cover featuring news tailored to that areaís fans. The rest will include a supplement of the national sports news.
