New business/politics publication planned in Arkansas
Talk Business & Politics is set to launch a monthly news magazine based in Jonesboro and focused on business and political leaders in northeast Arkansas, reports Kyle Massey of Arkansas Business.
Massey reports, “The monthly, Northeast Arkansas Talk Business & Politics, will be modeled on the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal, which Brock acquired by purchasing the journal’s parent company, Gray Matters LLC of Springdale, from Darin and Tami Gray in September 2016.
“TB&P is generating a mailing list and says the new magazine will be mailed to business, political and community leaders in 11 counties: Clay, Craighead, Crittenden, Cross, Greene, Jackson, Lawrence, Mississippi, Poinsett, Sharp and Randolph. The first issue is expected to roll out March 5.
“‘We will model this in similar fashion to the NWA Business Journal,’ Brock said in an email to Arkansas Business. ‘I expect there to be some politics from northeast Arkansas in this publication, but it will be heavily slanted towards business coverage in the region.'”
