Intact Media Group will launch, on September 1st, a glossy business monthly, Fin.ro, that will appear on the market in 64 color pages and will be made by both the team of “Saptamana Financiara” (Financial Week – n.r.) and “Financiarul” .
The coordinating team will include Gabriela Vranceanu Firea, general manager, Radu Preda, editorial director, and Edward Pastia, editor in chief, as DailyBusiness.ro writes .
According to Vranceanu Firea, the new magazine Fin.ro will be a business monthly that will mainly target businessmen and not the corporations.
The news about the new glossy business magazine comes soon after ReporterVirtual.ro announced that Financiarul economic newspaper strives to survive the autumn .
According to the mentioned source, the publication already renounced to around 10 people . Among the steps to follow mentioned by ReporterVirtual.ro are : reducing newspaper’s format to tabloid or even completely renouncing to the print edition for an online version of the same title .
The info initially published by ReporterVirtual was later confirmed by Gabriela Vranceanu Firea that said that Financiarul will see its last printed edition on Friday, after 3 years and a half on the market .
“Fin.ro will appear, starting August 29th, exclusively online . In the 1st part of September, we will launch a new business portal fin.ro. We are talking here about a different site from fin.ro’s one, both through design and functionalities”, Gabriela Vranceanu Firea said, for Mediafax .
According to Firea, Fin.ro’s readers prefer online and most of the advertising budgets are going now to this medium. On the other hand, she added that, following a restructuring process, the newsrooms from Saptamana Financiara and Financiarul were unified, with Saptamana Financiara to continue to appear in print.
