This one slipped past me last week, but the Dallas Morning News has joined most of the other large metropolitan newspapers in the country in cutting its stock listings during the week. Among the others that have made such a move to save on newsprint or to provide a bigger business news hole are the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Newsday, Orlando Sentinel, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Cincinnati Enquirer.
The Morning News noted, “With some of the space saved by reducing the stock tables, we will be providing a larger Market Day report that will include stock analysis, reports on the most widely held stocks, data on commodities futures and a larger listing of local stocks.
“We’ve also added new weekday news coverage of the local business community.
“The Market Week wrap-up on Sunday and interest rate charts on Monday will remain unchanged.
“In addition, we’ve significantly improved our online stock report for readers who want free access to the latest available information.”
