Business journalism pioneer Keough needs medical care
Don Keough, probably the most influential editor in the history of business journals, is seriously ill and needs help to receive the medical care he needs.
Keough was key player in the development of more than 20 local business newspapers around the country. He founded American City Business Journals in the early 1980s with backing from investors. He later was editor and publisher of the San Francisco Business Times.
Keough was also an influential player in the business journal operation run by Mark Vittert, who founded the Philadelphia Business Journal, in the early 1980s.
In 1989, when he was publisher of the Los Angeles Business Journal, he resigned to move to Australia to run a business publishing venture.
Keough, who now lives in Puerto Rico, suffered a heart attack on Sept. 14. He needs medical transport to Syracuse, New York, where his daughter lives.
