NYT may not end chess column

A report -- in the New York Times -- of the death of the New York Times' chess column may be premature, a Times spokesperson says. A note at the foot of Dylan Loeb McClain's Oct. 11 appeared to say the column was toast: "This is the final chess column to run in The New York Times."

Not necessarily so, says Times spokesperson Danielle Rhoades Ha: "We are considering eliminating the chess column in order to keep freelance costs in line. A final decision for the column (on all platforms) has not been made yet."
