More headlines, all bad

Dateline: Tue 03 Feb 2009

From the San Francsico Chronicle Friday:

"The Tahoe Daily Tribune will reduce its days of publication from five to three effective Feb. 2 due to increases in the cost of newsprint and the sour national economy, its publisher said in Friday's edition.

"The paper founded in 1958 and now owned by the Reno-based Swift Communications will be published on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays instead of the current schedule of Monday through Friday..."

From Associated Press, also printed Friday in the SF Chronicle:

"...the Los Angeles Times said Friday it is cutting 300 positions and will shrink the number of daily sections to four from five."

The LA Times is owned by the once-mighty Tribune Co. in Chicago. Other news from the same story:

Other papers have also moved to trim sections in order to save money amid a rapidly worsening advertising market.

"The New York Times in October folded the metro section in the paper's main news section from Monday to Saturday, and combined the business and sports sections on Tuesday to Friday.

"Earlier Friday, A.H. Belo Corp., which owns the The Dallas Morning News and three other newspapers, said it will lay off 500 workers, or about 14 percent of its work force, and take other cash-saving measures to cope with falling ad revenue."
