The OC Register to cut stock listings, theme daily

March 5, 2006

The Orange County Register, the largest newspaper in the Freedom Communications chain, said that it will cut its stock listings beginning March 28 and use the space to provide a themed coverage each day of the week.

Orange County RegisterThe paper said, “We’ll designate a day each week to explore each of the core issues that define our marketplace:

Sunday: Real Estate
Monday Business: Workplace, Careers, Small Business
Tuesday: Technology
Wednesday: Growth and Building
Thursday: Health and Biotech
Friday: Shops and Restaurants
Saturday: Your Money

“To make room for this expanded coverage, the Register is planning to trim the stock and fund tables. Starting March 28, we will convert one of the three stock pages into the new theme page.

“For those who still rely on the Register for stock quotes, we will continue to provide full listings each Saturday. You will also get a chance, later this month, to send us your stock and mutual-fund requests so that we can try to avoid cutting the ones you care most about.

“In the coming weeks, we’ll be providing more details about the coming changes both here on our Web site and on the cover of the business section in the print editions.”
