The Detroit News joins the litany of metro daily newspapers cutting stock listings. The News said that it will expand its coverage of the economy and other areas of business as a result.
Other metropolitan newspapers to cut stock listings so far this year include the Orlando Sentinel, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Denver Post and Cincinnati Enquirer.
Personal finance editor Brian O’Connor wrote, “Detroit News readers have told us they want more coverage of the economy, jobs and local and national business news. At the same time, readers nationwide increasingly follow the markets in real time through the Internet.
“In response, The News has scaled back its stock listings in favor of a livelier one-page market report. The extra space will be used for more daily business coverage.”
