Business Insurance Closing Down – Let the Lamenting Begin


I woke up this morning to the news that Crain Communications, publisher of Business Insurance Magazine, was closing down the long-lived magazine. I had to read the article twice to believe it. As a life-long risk manager, reading Business Insurance has been as much a part of my life as brushing my teeth or walking the dog.

Business Insurance has been the go-to place for developments and changes in the insurance marketplace, the comings and goings of colleagues in the industry and, recently, for the presentation of the best industry conferences in the business.

BI_Cover.jpgBusiness Insurance Magazine has been at the center of risk and insurance management life, dating back at least two generations. Since it was launched in 1967, the publication has been a steadfast spotlight on all things risk management, and has led the way in coverage of ERM, ERM platforms and other leading-edge practices.

This was no slow “goodbye tour” either. The August 1 publication will have been the final edition, and full cessation of business was effective yesterday (August 9).

Thanks to the BI reporters, event managers and staff. You have served our industry well.

BI, we in the risk and insurance management community will miss you. Every day.
