NYT to Downsize Fashion Spreads as Newspapers Continue to Suffer

In a matter of weeks (May 10th to be exact) the New York Times will scale back on its fashion coverage. The NYT will relegate all fashion and photography to T Magazine published every few weeks, and Sunday & Thursday Style sections.
The cut back is obvious in this economy and especially with the newspaper industry being in such an uncertain state.
“The hope and expectation remain that the pay cuts and the spending cuts outlined above will get us through the year without the need for other significant reductions," said Bill Keller, executive editor.
This is only a small portion of the significant losses that the newspaper industry is feeling as they attempt to bridge the gap between traditional news mediums and the rapid increase of new media.
