A business reporter across media
Dirk DeYoung, the editor of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, writes about reporter John Vomhof Jr., who appears on television and radio as well as in the print edition of the paper.
“Most Fridays, John will converse live with the anchors at roughly 5:30 and 6:30 a.m., usually about stories in the latest edition of the Business Journal, but sometimes they’ll talk about other news we’ve reported on our website.
“Today, John discussed on Fox 9 his story about Wal-Mart‘s search for potential store sites in downtown Minneapolis. He also talked about how Maya Moore is helping the marketing efforts of the Minnesota Lynx professional women’s basketball team.

“John is not new to broadcasting. He’s on WCCO Radio 830 live at 8:45 a.m. every weekday with Dave Lee.
“He’s also not new to the Business Journal. He’s been a reporter here since 2005, and covers retail, restaurants, sports business and hospitality.”
