Oregonian cuts stock listings, makes other changes to business
The Oregonian, the daily newspaper in Portland, said Sunday that it was cutting its daily stock listings and making other changes to its business section.
A short story in Sunday’s paper stated, “In addition, starting Labor Day, Monday sections will focus on personal technology news. The weekly report will include a national columnist, user tips and technology reviews.
“Based on local and national surveys as well as reader critiques and comments, the changes are aimed at serving the biggest possible readership. The Oregonian is adjusting its stock market report to the Internet era, in which real-time stock quotes are widely available, even via cell phones.
“On Friday, for instance, The Oregonian’s affiliated Web site, OregonLive (www.oregonlive.com), revamped its online stock report offerings, including more detail on stocks of local interest. For readers without Internet access, a recent Microsoft service, Tellme, provides automated, toll-free telephone quotes at 1-800-555-TELL (8355). They’re quick and just 20 minutes delayed.”
