No more holding business news until Friday
Bill Roy, the editor of the Wichita Business Journal, writes about how reporting has changed at the American City Business Journals paper.
Roy writes, “The Wichita Business Journal has rewired its newsroom.
“We have changed the way we operate so we can deliver the business intelligence you need to compete and win in the Air Capital.
“My reporters and I used to work each week to seek out exclusive local business news — scoops — and present them in the weekly edition of the WBJ that comes out each Friday.
“It didn’t matter if we got the scoop on Monday or Wednesday or the previous Friday, we held that scoop so we could break the news in your Friday paper.
“People talk. News leaks. Sometimes those stories would be picked up by our competitors and we would lose the exclusive.
“Now my reporters and I work our sources, we get the scoops and we report them immediately, on your mobile phone, on your tablet and on our website, WichitaBusinessJournal.com.
“Bottom line: No more holding the news. We get it to you as quickly as we can.”
