A short story in the Sunday paper (picked up by Talking Biz) notes that business coverage moves to the back of the B section and that Sunday stock listings will be kept to one page. The Web site offers specific stock quotes. Now that most dailies have sharply cut back on stock listings, prepare for the other shoe to drop - the loss of section fronts. Already, some smaller papers are shoving business sections inside of sports or metro - and no doubt cutting staffs in the process. Alas, it seems to be a return to the bad old days, when biz coverage was considered, at best, an afterthought at many papers.
