Kontan takes on Bisnis Indonesia, Investor Daily
February 26th, 2007

kontan.jpgKontan, a weekly business tabloid, has taken the plunge into the daily wars by becoming a broadsheet daily. The paper, a subsidiary of the Kompas Gramedia Group, launched its first daily edition today bringing it into direct competition with Bisnis Indonesia, Investor Daily.

Journalists are wondering whether by opting to go daily, Kontan would lose its edge as a paper known for its investigative and in-depth business stories or whether it can still crank out the stories despite the daily grind. Time will tell but whatís worth noting is that the Kompas Gramedia Group has very deep pockets to make the paper a success. Welcome Kontan. Itís good to see more competition.
