Missouri paper revamps Sunday biz section
The Springfield News-Leader in Missouri is updating its Sunday business section, writes executive editor David Stoeffler.
Stoeffler writes, “You’ll notice a major shift toward emphasizing local business and consumer news, including a regular column from business writer Wes Johnson. We’ll have news and feature stories about Ozarks businesses, plus a rotating series of economic statistics in our Ozarks Economic Snapshot. This week, we focus on tourism-related statistics, but in coming weeks, we’ll look at unemployment, auto sales and residential and commercial real estate trends.
“We’ll continue to emphasize local names and faces in our New Business Update, plus Awards & Achievers. And you’ll still find regular columns like Dean Asby’s Tech Talk and David Burton’s Agriculture in the Ozarks.
“We’ll also continue our roundup of local rates for certificates of deposit and consumer loans. However, due to space limitations and the widespread availability of this type of information, we’re discontinuing the Sunday stocks and markets pages. You can find all of the latest index averages, individual stock quotes, updated market news and more with the News-Leader.com Stock Market Tracker at www.news-leader.com/stocks.”
