On the QZ: Quartz Business News
by Marydee Ojala
A business-oriented, electronic news site debuted on Sept. 24, 2012. Called Quartz, it is owned by Atlantic Media Company, which also publishes The Atlantic, National Journal, and Government Executive, and on the web, Atlantic Wire, Atlantic Cities, and Buzzfeed. From its inception, Quartz was designed for tablets and mobile phones, although it also works as a website. Quartz is built using WordPress for its platform and is replete with eye-catching graphics. It is free to the user, relying on its four sponsors (Boeing, Cadillac, Chevron, and Credit Suisse) to cover at least some of its costs.
