Dallas Morning News is cutting standalone biz news section
The Dallas Morning News will cut its standalone business news section as part of cost-cutting measures at the newspaper.
The paper also is laying off 40 staffers, including 20 editorial workers. Two of those workers are business news desk staffers.
Metro and Business will be combined into one section Tuesday through Saturday. Top business stories will compete for spots on the cover of the combined section.
The exact number of pages daily will vary, depending on the overall news hole. There will be no Monday Business section.
Sunday Business will remain a standalone section, with plans to add content to it.
The timing of when the change will occur is still unclear.
Editors are spending this week figuring out all of the details and design. The paper’s publisher and editor are writing a column for print on Wednesday that’ll explain these changes to its print subscribers.
