The Augusta Chronicle, a daily newspaper in Georgia, has cut its Saturday stock listings.
Executive Editor Dennis Sodomka writes, “Again, this was a business decision. We think only a small percentage of our readers use these listings, and there are other readily available sources for stock quotes, such as The Chronicle’s Web site, augustachronicle.com.
“To get the latest quotes on stock from all the exchanges, and news about the stock market, go to chronicle.augusta.com/stocks/. You can search for a particular stock or just browse through the list of all of them.
“Believe me, I don’t like to take anything out of the paper. My job is to put things in the newspaper. But putting out a newspaper is a business, and we have to do the best we can with the resources available.”
