Maria Burnham of the Memphis Daily News reports that the Memphis Business Quarterly will now publish six issues a year, up from the four it used to produce.
Burnham writes, “In its quarterly incarnation, the magazine focused heavily on business profiles and features – news that had some shelf life, a requirement for publishing on a quarterly schedule. With its new schedule, the publication will be able to ramp up its hard news coverage of local business, Neill said. To that end, the company plans to hire an additional full-time news reporter.
“The magazine has no pretensions to covering daily businesses news – Neill says there are already plenty of publications in town doing that – but hopes to be able to add longer, more timely features to the city’s business news offerings.
“‘We can step away from the day-to-day coverage of events … step away from the trees and see the forest,’ Neill said. ‘Hopefully we do that as well as, if not better than, the other business publications in town. That’s what we see as our mission. We want to provide a cosmopolitan reflection of Memphis.'”
