WSJ SundayKaren Peterson of the Tacoma News Tribune writes about changes to its Sunday business section in the wake of the closure of Wall Street Journal Sunday.

Peterson writes, “First, the Sunday focus will be more local. Today’s cover features a centerpiece by C.R. Roberts about Selden’s furniture store and the four generations of Seldens who’ve run it.

“Business editor Debbie Cockrell plans to alternate the Sunday cover between these local business profiles and a feature she calls ‘What you need to know.’ The latter will offer small bites on a topic of local economic interest.

“We’ll keep local columnist Bill Virgin on the cover, along with the Money Power feature, Kiplinger’s personal finance column. Our recent reader survey showed a lot of interest in personal finance topics.

“Inside the section, we’ll run two pages from The Associated Press. The first page offers more personal finance information; the second provides market-oriented information from the previous week.

“Our daily business pages will change a bit as well. With the additional market page running Sundays, we’ll pull back a bit from our daily market charts. We’ll keep the daily chart tracking stocks of local interest.”
