PC WEEK reaffirms its role as the leader in news for IT professionals; Expands its online coverage to provide the most timely up-to-date news in the industry.

MEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 30, 1995--PC WEEK, the leading Information Systems (IS) newsweekly, is expanding its online presence and news gathering capabilities, reaffirming its role as the leading provider of news for IT and computer industry professionals.

PC WEEK, which began daily postings of news stories focusing on the computer industry earlier this year, will expand that effort on CompuServe, the Internet and AT&T's forthcoming Interchange online service, AT&T Interchange Online Network. This daily news feed complements the content from PC WEEK print editions that have been hosted via weekly updates on the ZiffNet service on CompuServe.

"This is a strategic statement. The paper and ink edition of PC WEEK will be supplemented by a robust online companion that offers additional daily spot news and analysis about the computer industry," said Dan Farber, vice president and editor-in-chief of PC WEEK. "In addition, our online efforts will allow our readers to have interactive access to PC WEEK content and editors, as well as to each other. The daily news feeds will deliver breaking computer industry news."

The online news effort will carry the popular twice-weekly news column "Coops Corner" written by PC WEEK Online News Editor Charles Cooper, as well as material from the PC WEEK demographic editions: Inside, NetWeek and Executive. Online discussion areas in ZiffNet, the Internet and Interchange will be expanded as well.

"We will selectively publish stories online as well as continue to post PC WEEK print edition stories. We will exploit both the immediacy of online to cover breaking news and the capacity of online to provide additional depth and context," said John Dodge, senior executive editor/news. "This won't be another computer wire service. Rather, we will leverage our industry contacts and drill down capabilities to provide analysis or new information, customizing it for print, online or both mediums."

Dodge oversees the PC WEEK news department and Cooper oversees the online news effort. PC WEEK Business Editor Neal Boudette will plan a major role in shaping the online effort. Also contributing will be new PC WEEK staff writer Evanthia Brickates, formerly with the Wall Street Journal.

PC WEEK Online News can be accessed on ZiffNet (GO PCWEEK) or on the PC WEEK World Wide Web server (
