Joining the Chicago Tribune, Providence Journal, Newark Star-Ledger, Newsday and others, the Denver Post announced in today’s paper that it was cutting its stock listings. Unlike some other papers, it appears that the Post is cutting stock listings altogether and won’t provide them in a truncated form in the paper. This is the first newspaper to cut all stock listings.
Here is part of its announcement: “Beginning Tuesday, The Denver Post is changing the way it provides stock listings. They will no longer be published in the Business section. They are available 24 hours a day at The Denver Post website, www.denverpost.com/business, where you also can create a personalized “portfolio manager” to track stocks – at no charge.
“In addition, readers may call a toll-free number, 1-800-555-8355, to get quotes for any stock on a 15-minute delayed basis.”
The Post said it would continue to publish mutual fund listings and publish a stock market story Tuesday through Saturday.
