Sports Journalists’ Association: FT to drop Saturday Sports section

According to the Sports Journalists Association, the Financial Times ‘has decided to cut its sports coverage in the paper from the end of this month.’

“…features sub Charles Morris – who has edited the paper’s sports coverage – keeps his job, [but] the space dedicated to the subject, even in the £2.30 Weekend edition, will be cut as pagination is reduced,” the SJA reports on its blog.

Update: the FT confirmed to Journalism.co.uk that the weekly sports section will be cut from Saturday 14 February, ‘as part of a strategy to focus on our core strength,’ a spokesperson from the paper said. The paper had already limited its coverage to one day a week in 2007.
