To readers of the Business Journal:
As of the date on this issue, Friday, June 1, the city’s weekly business newspaper returns to local ownership. It looks the same, which is intentional, and in fact even the company’s name remains intact: Colorado Publishing Co.
But the hope is that you’ll notice improvements in the weeks and months to come, as we strive to make CSBJ one of the best business newspapers anywhere. The editorial staff remains, along with a familiar face, John Hazlehurst, who returns to the role he had from April 2006 to January 2011 as writer and columnist.
We’ll be adding other voices and features, all with the sole idea of making the Business Journal more essential than ever to the entire local business community. We’ll also be talking and listening to you, finding out what you like about CSBJ, what you liked when it was more robust, and what we might consider adding to make the newspaper more indispensable than ever.
We welcome your input, and we look forward to a lasting relationship.
Fran Zankowski, CEO
Ralph Routon, Executive Editor
