The Tribune continues to shrink
December 7, 2009
Readers of the San Luis Obispo County Tribune will notice an increasingly thinner newspaper on Mondays and Tuesdays. Executive Editor Sandra Duerr announced more format changes for the paper in a special Announcement to Readers.
Starting with today’s edition, the Local section will be merged into the A section and Classified advertising will be folded into the Sports section on Mondays and Tuesdays. The remainder of the week will follow the traditional Tribune format, though Duerr announced that the Business section would be trimmed.
“In today’s newspaper, you’ll find a significant change,” Duerr wrote. “One that we take reluctantly, but that’s nonetheless necessary as we continue to cope with the economic downturn affecting every industry.”
