The Corridor Business Journal in Iowa and KCRG-TV9 have struck a content partnership where the TV station will provide local news and weather and the business newspaper will provide business stories.

A story on the TV station’s website states, “‘KCRG-TV9 is recognized across Eastern Iowa as the premier provider of community and breaking news, investigative journalism and weather, while the CBJ is considered by many in the business community to be the premier source of local business coverage,’ said CBJ Publisher and CEO John Lohman. ‘On that level, it makes sense for our two organizations to partner together, and we look forward to serving the Eastern Iowa community in a more comprehensive form in the months ahead.’

“‘We recognize that CBJ and KCRG-TV9 have a shared commitment to providing accurate, objective and timely information to the people who depend on us,’ noted KCRG-TV9 Vice President and General Manager Thom Pritz. ‘While we have the ability to cover a wide range of stories that are important to our viewers on any given day, CBJ has the experience in delving into the details and nuances of the stories that have significance in the business community.”
