OLD Media Moves

Lakeland Ledger to cut stock listings

May 2, 2006

The Lakeland Ledger, a New York Times’ newspaper in central Florida, said that it would cut its daily stock listings with a summary of what happened in the markets.

The move mirrors what its parent company’s flagship paper did last month and what other papers in Florida such as the nearby Orlando Sentinel have done to their stock listings.

The Ledger said, “In addition, a new weekly series, Kids and Money by Neale Godfrey, will appear on Tuesdays, along with daily stories focusing on personal finance.

“As part of a continuing effort to integrate The Ledger and its Web version, as well as that of The New York Times, readers will be able to choose from an array of new online functions, including a host of interactive graphics.

“For information on U.S. stocks, bonds, mutual funds, stocks of local interest, world markets and currencies, go to www.theledger.com/business.

“Readers who wish to receive closing prices of their stocks and mutual funds by e-mail as well as receive midday alerts about sharp price shifts or business news that affects them can register at www.nytimes.com/business.”
