Idaho paper bringing back standalone biz section


The Idaho Statesman in Boise is bringing back its standalone business section.

Editor Vicki Gowler writes, “Starting Wednesday, our stand-alone Business section will return.

“We’ve made some changes to get the best business stories in, and we know the extra section will make it easier for families to share the paper.

“On Tuesdays, when we offer the in-depth Business Insider magazine, our business coverage will remain in the main news section.”

The Business Insider magazine launched in January 2011.
