Richmond paper brings back standalone business section


The Richmond Times-Dispatch, a Media General paper, is added to its business coverage, returning its standalone business section for the first time since it was cut in 2006.

A brief in the paper states, “The new section can be found after the Sports section on most days.

“With a section front Tuesday through Saturday, we’re adding a fourth page of business news. We’re expanding our daily stock listings — as other newspapers across the country eliminate their listings or reduce them. And we’re providing readers with new content.

“Sunday’s Moneywise and Monday’s Metro Business sections remain the same.”
