Athens, GA (Sept 10, 2008) - The New York Observer has reported (found via a link on PoynterOnline), that the New York Times will be eliminating a separate sports section in a move expected to save US$5 Million a year:

But in these difficult times, journalistic success is not a protection against the inevitable downscaling affecting the newspaper industry. Just five days earlier, Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. informed the staff that starting in October, for four days a week, the sports section would lose its stand-alone section, and would be tucked inside the business section


“The aim, of course, is to save money—and, importantly, to do it without cutting back coverage,” wrote Mr. Keller in a follow-up memo to the announcement by Mr. Sulzberger.

Of course they could also save money by going back to black and white photos only.
