Orlando Sentinel editor: ‘We chose to cut news pages to help bolster our bottom line’

Orlando Sentinel
Give Mark Russell a few points for honesty. The editor of Orlando Sentinel tells readers that “the move to cut news pages was driven by our need to reduce expenses …[but] we also decided to expand the space for local news — the content we think is most valuable to our readers.” The Tribune-owned paper is reducing news pages two months after the Chicago Tribune announced that it’s adding 40 more news pages a week and said its news hole is larger than it was five years ago.
