Crain’s to launch email business newsletter for Denver

DENVER — Crain Communications Inc., the century-old Detroit-based conglomerate whose list of publications includes Advertising Age magazine and business newspapers in Chicago and other cities, will launch an email newsletter next week to serve the Denver area.

According to an email sent to Crain’s subscribers, the newsletter each day will curate business news and information from every Crain publication plus a variety of local, national and industry content publishers, then deliver it free to subscribers early on weekday mornings.

Crain’s empire includes about 30 business, trade and consumer publications and related Web sites in North America, Europe and Asia.

Direct competition between Crain’s and Charlotte, N.C.-based American City Business Journals has heated up in recent years as each company launches ventures in areas served by the other. ACBJ, owned by Advance Publications Inc., publishes about 40 “Business Journal” newspapers and associated websites, including the Denver Business Journal. It also publishes The Sporting News and various Street & Smith’s magazines.

Crain’s Denver venture will be the second to make its debut in the Mile High City in slightly more than a year. Business Den launched in January 2015, along with a downtown Denver office and a staff of five.
