Former BusinessWeek Editor Byrne Previews New-Media Venture

john_byrne03312010.jpgFishbowlNY sister site WebNewser has the latest on C-Change Media, ex-BusinessWeek editor in chief John Byrne’s forthcoming Internet portal for business professionals.

Speaking at a panel last night in San Francisco, Byrne said C-Change would function like a “HuffPo for business,” with a full-time editor in chief and freelance and contract writers. It will have several satellite sites focusing on specific business interests, he said, along with a more broadly focused “mother ship.” Reports WebNewser:

“The business category [online] is less developed than general news, gossip, entertainment, sports, food, women’s service, health,” Byrne told WebNewser. “So there’s a real open road to make something happen here. Smart people can make it happen very easily. The technology costs are low, so the barrier to entry is very low.”
