Changes are afoot at IBJ—in print and online—aimed at providing even stronger coverage of central Indiana’s business community.
While many news organizations across the country are cutting staff in response to challenging market conditions, we’re increasing the number of beat reporters on the streets breaking stories and providing indispensable information you can’t get anywhere else.
Our plans include:
• Opening a north-side bureau. Veteran reporter and editor Andrea Muirragui Davis will lead our coverage of Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield and Zionsville—communities where many of our readers live or work. Watch IBJ.com for her soon-to-launch blog, North of 96th.
• Expanding coverage of media and marketing. Veteran business reporter Chris O’Malley will lead our coverage of this fast-changing field, focusing on the personalities and power brokers who shape it.
• Launching Eight@8, a breezy, morning e-newsletter that will tell you what you need to know as you start your workday.
Expect other new products by this fall, including blogs on technology and health care.
The new offerings reflect the commitment of our local ownership to find new ways to serve readers on every platform, from the newspaper to smartphone to tablet. We hope you’ll like the additions and share your feedback on our efforts.•
