Indianapolis Business Journal names new publisher
Greg Morris, who has been with the Indianapolis Business Journal for the past 19 years, has been named the weekly business newspaper’s new publisher.
He had been the interim publisher for the past three months.
Morris writes, “We look at our company as not just a newspaper, but a news company. The newspaper is our primary form of disseminating information and I’m pleased to say the printed paper is here to stay. Of course, we also have ibj.com and the newsletters and alerts we send via e-mail. Our website, by the way, is a finalist for an Eppy Award. We’ll find out how we fared against CBS’ ‘MoneyWatch,’ Crain’s Chicago Business and a handful of other finalists in our two categories when the awards are handed out by Editor & Publisher magazine June 17 in Las Vegas. Win or lose, we’re honored to be in such fine company.
“We’re not resting on our laurels. Coming soon, we’re going to bring you mobile news via apps on your iPhone, BlackBerry and Android smart phone. This is just the beginning of many new technological ways to supplement our newspaper and better serve our customers. Think print and digital together as we move forward.
“As a businessperson, I understand the challenging times businesses are experiencing today. We want to provide news that is valuable to your business and/or your career. I want to thank our loyal subscribers, readers and advertisers for your patronage. It is your choice to do business with us and I do not take that choice for granted.”
