This explosive growth was fueled by the realization of the importance of small business to the American economy. Many national business magazines were established, and daily newspapers launched expanded business news sections to fulfill this need. These sections offered more news -- but not necessarily the new and information needed by business executives to effectively run their businesses. Business journals today are perceived as a "must read." The business journals report on small companies and industries that have been overlooked by other media. They focus on the local movers and shakers and serve as a unique reference by which to gauge the vitality of the local business economy. And as business journals have grown in following and influence, they have taken on the role of being the advocate for change in the business community.
