Two veteran newspapermen are launching a new travel tabloid they say will provide Idaho readers with the kind of information and features available only in the travel sections of big-city newspapers or expensive magazines.
"Going Places" will be a 24- to 40-page monthly that will offer international, national, regional and state travel news. The first edition of 24,000 copies is set for publication in November."Trade newspapers exist for travel professionals, but to my knowledge this is the first paper for the traveling public," said Peter Rose, the tabloid's publisher and editor.
Jay Brandt, an advertising salesman for The Idaho Statesman since 1988, is the advertising director for "Going Places."
The inaugural edition includes features on Hawaii and Costa Rica, a story on singles cruises and a look at skiing in Idaho and the region, in addition to columns on business, RV and rail travel, testing vehicles on a trip and unusual travel personalities and situations.
