Suburban Chicago paper to cut stock listings

October 8, 2006

The Daily Southtown, a suburban Chicago paper owned by the Sun-Times group, announced in its Sunday paper that it would cut its stock listings beginning later this month.

Dennis Robaugh Managing editor Dennis Robaugh wrote, “Later this month, the Southtown will submit to the march of technology and the changing nature of printed news by reducing the stock and mutual fund listings to a single page of market highlights and analysis.

“DailySouthtown.com offers you a much more effective tool for monitoring your stocks and funds.

“We resisted altering our print listings until we were sure our readers would be able to monitor their portfolios online. DailySouthtown.com now has such a feature.

“Go to our Web site, click on the Business link at the top of our home page, and then look for the TRACK YOUR PORTFOLIO link. Click here, and you can set up a portfolio to track your stocks. You can also receive e-mail updates or establish stock alerts to be sent to your e-mail.
