Indiana paper cuts business weekly
The South Bend Tribune in Indiana is discontinuing publication of its Tribune Business Weekly after 23 years.
In a letter to subscribers, Tribune president and publisher Kim Wilson writes, “We at the South Bend Tribune thank you for supporting the Tribune Business Weekly (TBW) over the past 23 years. Your readership has helped to make TBW the premier business-to-business publication in this market. Recent reader feedback has prompted us to revamp our business content to better meet the evolving needs of our readers. With that in mind, we announce that the Tribune Business Weekly will soon cease print publication. The last issue will publish on Monday, March 26, 2012.
“It is with great anticipation and excitement that we look forward to using your input to enhance our local business coverage. In fact, our local business coverage will expand in the South Bend Tribune in the months ahead. You’ll find many of the features you read now in TBW in the daily and Sunday print business sections of your daily newspaper. Even more information will be found online. We know you are using digital, mobile and social media to gather information, connect with others, and to make purchasing decisions, and you will find us there as well.
“This move will further aid us in providing timely and relevant information to grow your business and promote your career. As we go through this evolution process, please continue to give us your feedback to help guide our development. You can email your comments or ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you again for making the Tribune Business Weekly successful for the past 23 years.”
