The Business Journal weekly online newspaper will commence publication from Monday, August 7, 2023.
The weekly online newspaper will complement the existing Business Journal daily digital platform and the Business Journal monthly magazine in a move designed to have the Business Journal Media Group operating effectively in three (3) media formats: Daily-Weekly-Monthly!
The weekly online newspaper will focus on key sectors of the Nigerian economy such as Banking & Finance, Energy (Oil & Gas, Power), Insurance & Pension, Telecom & IT, Capital Market, Maritime, Literature, Sports Business, HealthCare, AgriBusiness, Manufacturing, Politics & Policy, Small Business (MSMEs), Travel & Tourism, The MBA Academy, Housing & Environment, Arts & Culture, Branding (Media + Marketing) and others.
Commenting on the development, Prince Cookey, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of the Business Journal Media Group said:
“The coming of our weekly online newspaper completes our strategic plan for effective delivery of news, features, analysis, special reports and other media offerings across daily, weekly and monthly channels. The essence of our plan is to deliver intrinsic value to policy-makers in the public sector (federal/state) and operators in the Organised Private Sector (OPS). Accordingly, we solicit for editorial and advert support from individual and corporate stakeholders to keep the flag flying for the benefit of the Nigerian economy and media industry as well.”
Cookey said the Group is open to strategic engagement and collaboration on existing and emerging public policy issues, governance, market growth and expansion for the private sector.
Business Journal was established in May 2008 as a monthly magazine.
The newspaper was launched officially at a well-attended public presentation ceremony on Friday, September 16, 2022, at Radisson Hotel, GRA, Ikeja.
