The Lakeland Ledger, a New York Times newspaper in Florida, is dropping its Sunday business section, according to a story in the paper.
The story stated, “The decision was not an easy one, said Ledger Publisher Jerome Ferson. But he noted economic conditions for newspapers remain difficult, and how resources are allocated must change.
“‘Providing first-rate Polk County news and information is one of our top priorities,’ Ferson said. ‘Making this change will allow our business staff to focus more on daily news coverage.’
“While the Sunday Business section will be dropped, The Ledger will continue daily business news coverage. Executive Editor Skip Perez said much of the Sunday content will be relocated to the daily pages.”
