SNEWS changes the way we bring you news, but just a bit

The SNEWS® team never ignores reader feedback about what we can do to improve the way we deliver news, information, and the way you get your news. (And you certainly aren't a shy bunch about expressing opinions). So we're changing the way we present some of our stories to make it easier for you to find the news that you need.

The SNEWS® team never ignores reader feedback about what we can do to improve the way we deliver news, information, and the way you get your news. (And you certainly aren't a shy bunch about expressing opinions). So we're changing the way we present some of our stories to make it easier for you to find the news that you need.

Starting with this issue, financial news, such as quarterly reports and acquisitions, will no longer appear within their respective Outdoor and Fitness "Did You Hear" section of briefs. Instead, outdoor-related and fitness-related financial news will appear under their own headline, Outdoor financials and Fitness financials. Of course, some financial and earnings news will still warrant their own story, depending on importance.

In addition, we will strive to keep all news in the "Did You Hear" sections focused only on news briefs, company or personnel changes, store moves, research bits, and fun or entertaining news quickies. "Brief" stories that aren't, well, that brief or even short ones that may warrant their own headline will get just that – a headline so it's easier for you to spot and to read.
