Greenspun Media Group Launches Innovative
Business Publication VEGAS INC on April 4
Weekly publication raises the standard for the way local business professionals receive their news
A departure from conventional business-to-business publications, VEGAS INC takes a 360-degree approach to pressing local issues, offering readers a unique point of view through in-depth features, interviews, profiles and coverage on the latest news.
The new format and energized content of the publication will replace the weekly newspaper In Business Las Vegas.
Designed to complement the fast-paced lifestyle of today’s decision makers, VEGAS INC grabs readers’ attention through its eye-catching design and informative content presented in a conversational tone. The magazine focuses on issues ranging from gaming, tourism, finance, entertainment and real estate to health care, dining and social media.
The glossy-cover focuses on a single, hot-button topic each week, and every issue is built around three focal sections. “In Business Las Vegas” becomes an integral section in the weekly issue as it contains all the news coverage previously available in In Business Las Vegas.
“Big Story” is a comprehensive article that, along with “The Interview,” an exclusive Q&A with newsmakers, is comprised of long-form articles in VEGAS INC. A weekly “20 Answers” provides a well-rounded perspective on current topics by posing the same question to 20 local business people representing a wide array of vocations and skill levels.
The “Right Now” section opens VEGAS INC with categories that span a variety of topics, including book reviews, informative factoids, business deals, power lunch spots, celebrity chef interviews, creative advertising slogans and features about non-English-speaking businesses. Numerous other new features focus on the people, places and events that create what may be the world’s most dynamic business community.
“When we set out to create VEGAS INC, the idea was first to preserve what made In Business Las Vegas so good – it’s unrivaled business news coverage – and enhance that with compelling features, interesting factoids, informative viewpoints and a beautiful design,” said VEGAS INC Editor in Chief Richard Pérez-Feria. “We’re so excited VEGAS INC is finally here – now the real work begins.”
Greenspun Media Group Publisher Bruce Spotleson said the company is “proud to introduce VEGAS INC as the newest addition to our family. We believe it will quickly become a must-read publication for anyone interested in successful business.”
The glossy-cover magazine is produced under the direction of Pérez-Feria. He’s assisted by an expanded editorial staff, including all of the previous In Business Las Vegas team of journalists, which has perennially been cited for excellence in numerous industry competitions.
Airing weekly at 6:30 p.m. on KSNV Ch. 3, In Business, the TV program, will change its name to VEGAS INC. Veteran co-anchors Dana Gentry and Jeff Gillian continue to lead the 30-minute program and deliver news stories that serve as a further expansion of the VEGAS INC brand.
VEGAS INC is available each Monday for $3.99 per issue or for home/business delivery with a purchase of a one-year subscription for $50. For more information on advertising or details on subscriptions, visit VEGASINC.com.
