Augusta paper dropping Monday biz tabloid
The Augusta Chronicle is discontinuing its three-year-old Monday business news tabloid called “Your Business” and putting the content back into its Sunday and Monday newspaper.
Business editor Tim Rausch writes, “Why end three years of Your Business as we know it? The business tab always had a limited circulation in Richmond and Columbia counties. Though we’ve featured some Aiken and Edgefield County businesses, those folks have never been able to get the section in their paper.
“Because the content is being moved into the regular newspaper, all of our readers will be able to see it in print. (They could always see it online, however.)
“There have been a lot of changes at The Augusta Chronicle over the past year — a new Web site, a new look for Applause, the embracing of social media — and this is the latest change.
“Though we will lose the coffee table feel of Your Business as a tab section, we will get some more oomph in the Sunday paper.”
