Baltimore Sun cuts Sunday standalone section

December 29, 2008

The Baltimore Sun announced that its Sunday Money & Life section would begin appearing inside the A section, beginning next week.

A short announcement stated, “Features such as Eileen Ambrose‘s personal finance column and various articles and features on consumer and financial news will remain part of our Sunday coverage.”

That was the last business front left at the Sun. The daily section was moved inside the A section with the redesign this past summer.

Money & Life was a consumer section created last year to substitute for a traditional Sunday section. It was the primary print vehicles for Ambrose, a SABEW Best in Business winner in the columnist category last year, and Dan Thanh Dang, who won the AP Chesapeake Award for columnists — all types of columnists — last year.

Before it was announced that the section front was being killed, Dang, who was also the paper’s Consuming Interests blogger, took a buyout and left the paper. She’d been there 18 years as an intern, reporter and columnist, and the Sun was the only place she had ever worked.
