What losing a standalone business section means
Mary Cornatzer, the business editor of The (Raleigh) News & Observer, writes Saturday about moving the business section into the City & State section, which will now be called Triangle & Co.
She notes that Saturday’s standalone business section, the last at the paper, should be a collector’s item.
Cornatzer writes, “Business reporters will continue to write for the newspaper’s front page. Their stories also will be on 1B, which is the Triangle & Co. section front, as well as on four inside pages dedicated to business news. The daily report on the financial markets will follow the first business page. Stock listings and mutual funds remain intact.
“Business news of national and international interest will move between 1A and the business pages.
“We will continue to run listings of calendar events: career moves, personnel changes, bankruptcies, philanthropic endeavors and awards. Paul Gilster‘s computers column and the Stump the Geeks column are making the move as well. Sue Stock‘s retailing column will be on the Triangle & Co. section front on Saturdays. Jack Hagel‘s Commercial Real Estate column will continue to run on Thursdays.”
