The Muncie Star Press is eliminating its Monday business section in favor of a section that will be called Good News — and only publish “good news.”
General manager Gene Williams writes, “The section will run on Mondays and replace our Business and Life sections.
“Normally, there’s very little business news worth publishing on a Monday — and no stock tables to contend with — and what news is important we’ll include in our Nation/World report. And since many of the stories that will run in Good News are things we’d run in Life we figure that’s a wash.
“This is an experiment for the month of August only, to see whether readers and advertisers indeed like having good news bundled into a single section. If it proves to be popular, we’ll continue it. If not, that will tell us something. Regardless, we won’t ever stop printing ‘good news.'”
