Toledo Blade changing in size

TOLEDO (WTOL) - The economic crunch means another change is coming for the Toledo Blade.

The presses continue rolling, but starting Tuesday, February 24, you'll start noticing a difference in the size. The Blade is narrowing the width of the paper by about an inch.

Costs for the paper have gone up. In December, more than 20 full and part time Blade workers were laid off.

Assistant Managing Editor Luann Sharp tells News 11 the blade is taking the hit this time so others don't. "The news quality won't be affected at all. Actually, our focus will be to prioritize the product that goes in the newspaper based on what our readers say they want."
