The Indianapolis Business Journal has launched a political commentary website called INForeFront.

The site is moderated by Norm Heikens, who also oversees the newspaper’s opinion and editorial pages and the Forefront print section.

“We have put together a strong roster of about 30 local bloggers from across Indiana weighing in with commentary on politics, policy and government,” said Cory Schouten, the managing editor of the paper, in an email to Talking Biz News. “We expect our roster of contributors to continue to grow in the coming weeks, and we’re looking forward to adding more high-profile Hoosier thought leaders.”

Schouten added: “We saw an opportunity to expand on our popular print Forefront section and build a statewide online forum for civil discussion of policy and government. We are fortunate to have some of the state’s best and brightest as readers and contributors, several of whom have agreed to join the site as bloggers. The new INforefront will give our opinion offering a sense of immediacy and interactivity and a much-broader reach than the monthly pullout print section.”

The site includes local, state, national and international politics sections, as well as Democratic and Republican sections.
