‘Times’ to Consolidate Sections


In order to save on printing costs, the Times will cut the number of sections it has in the paper by folding the “Metro” and “Sports” sections into other sections of the newspaper, reports the Observer today: “According to newsroom sources, the Metro Section is moving into the A-section and the Sports section will move into the Business section for some portion of the week.” Okay, combining the “Metro” and front sections makes sense, but “Sports” and “Business” is kind of weird, no? What’s next, “Automotive” and “Styles”? [NYO]
