‘Chicago Tribune’ to narrow pages in January

Published on .

Chicago—The Chicago Tribune will become one-half inch narrower starting Jan. 14, the Tribune Co. said Friday.

The change to the 12-inch industry standard width “will provide advertisers with more universal ad sizes and conserve newsprint,” the company said in a news release. The height of the newspaper’s pages will remain the same.

The New York Times earlier this month cut 1.5 inches from its width in a move the New York Times Co. said would save about $10 million per year.
