Staten Island paper to focus on local coverage

December 30, 2006

The Staten Island Advance plans to drop its Saturday Money section and focus more on local coverage, according to a short story in the paper on Saturday.

What that means is that the paper is adding an additional business reporter.

The story stated, “Business Editor Stephannia Cleaton will direct the coverage, and Bart Horowitz will become senior business writer for the newspaper, in addition to writing his weekly column — Business UpClose — each Wednesday.

“In order to concentrate on local business news, the Advance will discontinue the Money section on Saturdays, including the weekly stock roundup. Feature material from that section will be included on the business pages throughout the week. Because of rapid technological advances, stock listings are available on a seven-day, 24-hour basis from a variety of sources and the Advance feels it more important to devote resources to daily business news reports you cannot get anywhere else.”
