Remember that Steve Martin bit, Let’s get small?
Well, as first reported here months ago, that process is well on its way at the Kansas City Star and took its first baby step today in the FYI section.
In yet another a cost cutting move – albeit one that happily does not entail a known body count – the Star is set to join the Lawrence Journal World in shrinking the size of its print edition newspaper.
Smaller ads, less news content, lower printing costs?
Whatever the bottom line benefits, the plan is supposed to go down March 22nd later this month.
For a preview of coming attractions, note the 10-inch wide image area of today’s FYI versus the 11-inches wide image area yesterday.
Less is more?
If the downsizing of the print paper saves a job or three, I say more power to em!
