Like a flurry of other newspapers, Newsday is cutting its stock tables down by half.
The paper will continue to run 900 listings Tuesday through Friday. Sunday’s tables will carry 2,200 stocks and 1,200 mutual funds. The paper directs readers to its Web site to check on information for over 25,000 listings. Additionally, readers can call a voice activated phone system for quotes.
According to a story in Newsday, the paper cited rising newsprint costs and a waning demand for stock tables in print.
Newsday launched a new financial page on Monday called LI Financial Watch focusing on Long Island companies.
Most recently, the Chicago Tribune said it was dropping most of its daily stock listings. The Tribune and Newsday are both owned by the Tribune Co.
