The Tacoma News Tribune in Washington joins the papers that will cut stock listings in an attempt to save on newsprint costs and steer readers to its Web site for stock price information.
Executive Editor David Zeeck writes in Sunday’s paper, “As more information moved online over the past several years, newspapers dramatically trimmed their listings, without reader complaint. Now, because of rising newsprint prices and the ubiquity of the information, newspapers are cutting them.
“At The News Tribune weâ€™re planning to drop two full pages of daily stock listings, but keep a daily summary â€“ including Northwest stocks â€“ Tuesday through Friday. We plan to run a summary of week-ending stock listings, including mutual fund reports, in the Saturday paper.”
