Very sad. The rumor for a while had been late 2010, then it moved up to February, then suddenly it was today. Curious to see what happens to their Redskins beat reporter Ryan O'Halloran. He's great

Getting rid of the sports section. Thats a death wish for any newspaper. The equivalent in business of cutting advertising cost to save money.

As we all know most guys will read the paper for 2-3 things.

Front Page for latest news.
Sports
Comics.... ;)

The Post has the Metro so us guys might actually read that as well for local news. Now unles your into business or stocks then you might actually read 3/4th of the paper. It sounds like they are dooming themselves if you ask me. Cut sports and you cut a large majority of male readers.

They've already cut their weekend editions. Rumor is they will completely shut down in 2010 and be online only.

Lol yeah, only way to compensate for the loss of male readers would be to have Oprah herself write a column to bring in female readers.

The recessionary economy is reeking havoc across a broad spectrum, nothing is exempt.

Ann Arbor did that with their newspaper a few years back. Totally cut the print to go online. It is sad, but they can't compete with the WP.

Newspapers are doomed either way.

I know, my wife has worked for Knight Ridder (Now McClatachy) since 1985 and budget restraints are beginning to take their toll. Fortunately, she'll be retiring in 2012.

I wonder what Thom Loverro is going to do now? He is always advertising on the radio for the Washington Times. It really is bad when you don't have a sports section. They could have cut something else, I am sure but I guess that was probably the most costly. With the internet cutting into to so much of the media, this what happens when you can get the information faster than waiting for a day for it.

Washington Times has been bleeding cash forever. Sucks to be let go during the holidays but everyone there knew the writing was on the wall.

That's the only section I read in that pile of a paper. I wonder if the Post brings O'Halloran on or if he moves elsewhere.

I hope you're wrong, but I'm afraid you're not. I always like the sports in the Times better than the Post.
