New Czech free daily will focus on business

The Associated Press is reporting that a publisher in the Czech Republic is planning to launch a business oriented free daily later this month. Mlada Fronta AS, a privately owned Czech publisher, says its new paper, titled E15, will have an initial press run of 50,000 per day, Monday-Friday. AP says some analysts contend that E15 might add pressure on the tight print market by targeting business sections of the general news dailies as well as Hospodarske Noviny, the only Czech business daily newspaper.
