About Time: NYT kills print stock tables in print edition

AlI can ask is "What took them so long?":

"Beginning April 4, The New York Times will stop publishing daily stock listings on Tuesdays through Saturdays and will offer a new package of interactive tools and market information on its Web site, the paper announced yesterday.

In announcing the change, The Times joins other newspapers that have cut stock listings to reduce newsprint costs as more readers monitor investments using the Internet.

The Times will replace the tables in the newspaper with two pages of market and economic information, including performance listings of the top 100 stocks in the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index, market analysis, mutual fund information, charts tracking individual company performance and lists of foreign currency exchange rates."

Other papers that have cut back on stock listings in print editions: The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, Newsday and The Orlando Sentinel.

Its looking more  and more like this new fangled internet thingie may catch on!
