July 8, 2008

The Deseret News joined other metropolitan newspapers on Tuesday when it announced it was cutting its standalone business section.

Dennis Romboy of the Deseret News wrote, “The paper’s business section, including stock pages, will be eliminated in its current format. Business news will be relocated inside the A section.

“In addition, some sections of the paper will be combined or streamlined to be more efficient in the printing process. The Sunday Arts and Travel sections, for example, will be contained within the same section.

“Despite the changes, editor Joe Cannon said the paper going forward will have substantially the same content it does today.

“‘We still expect to deliver what people have come to know as the Deseret News,’ Cannon said.”
