Miami Herald brings back standalone biz section
The Miami Herald is returning its standalone business section during the week.
Executive editor Aminda Gonzalez writes, “Beginning Tuesday, we are melding business news with classified advertising to restore a separate Business section. You can find section C tucked behind local and state news.
“When we created the ‘faux’ Business section four years ago, we were in the midst of a deep recession and business news dominated the front page. We put Business on the back of local — the only way to give the section a color front. Still, many of you remained frustrated by the design.
“‘Business in South Florida has picked up and settled into normalcy,’ said Jane Wooldridge, Miami Herald business editor. ‘While some parts of the economy are still struggling, Miami is back on strong footing.’
“The move to a separate Business section comes on the heels of last month’s launch of an expanded Business Monday section. We have added new features on international trade, the broker’s view of the real estate marketplace, and a CEO round-table. All of these areas represent local business sectors that are showing growth. We’ve also expanded distribution of the publication in key business areas in downtown, Doral and Coral Gables.”
