Newsday launches new Sunday business section
by Chris Roush
Newsday introduced on Sunday a new standalone business section with more color.
In a note in the paper last Thursday, publisher Fred Groser wrote, “This Sunday, we launch a stand-alone LI Business section, making this indispensable report easier to find. LI Business will include the redesigned help-wanted classifieds and wrap Sunday’s Optimum Autos pullout section.”
Talking Biz News sent emails to the paper’s business editor and managing editor asking for more details. We were referred to the spokeswoman for the paper, Lauren Andrich.
Andrich sent the following statement, “As part of broader production changes, which are resulting in a dramatic increase in color throughout the paper, we have reformatted our existing Sunday business content in an easier-to-find, stand-alone section.”
We asked if the business news content was in another section and whether the content changed at all.
Andrich responded, “Business content had previously appeared as a run of pages within the main section. There are no changes to business content.”
