Not-So-Broad Shoulders: 'Chicago Tribune' To Trim Page Size in January

By: The Chicago Tribune is reducing its page size slightly, a step being taken increasingly by U.S. newspapers.

The daily said Friday it will debut its new 12-inch page width -- narrower by one-half inch -- on Jan. 14.

It said the cost-saving move will result in "an improved reader and advertising experience," providing advertisers with more universal ad sizes as it conforms to the new industry standard.

The Tribune's editorial design also will be updated to enhance reader appeal, the Tribune Co.-owned newspaper said in a written statement.

"This minor change in our page dimensions will allow the newspaper to more effectively serve our customers with our award-winning journalism and an enhanced advertising environment," said Scott Smith, the newspaper's president, publisher and CEO.
