June 29, 2008

The Ventura County Star will cut its standalone business section during the week beginning Monday, writes editor Joe Howry in Sunday’s paper.

Ventura County StarOther California papers to have cut their standalone business section include the Orange County Register, Stockton Record, Monterey Herald, and the San Francisco Chronicle on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Howry writes, “The most noticeable cut will be the Business section as a stand-alone section. We are creating a two-page Business report in the daily A section that will cover all business news of the day, including local business news stories. Our local business lifestyle stories will be incorporated into a new section called ‘Day To Day.’

“This section will replace the Arts & Living section and will focus on how we live our lives. Our plan is to make this a well-rounded source of information that encompasses all facets of our lives. It will include the arts, business, relationships, health, food, entertainment, consumerism, advice and much more.”
