The StarNews is constantly re-evaluating features that we provide readers and online users to ensure that we are getting the greatest “bang for the buck.” After reviewing the cost and the audience metrics of the interactive Sudoku and crossword puzzles that we have hosted on StarNewsOnline for the last few years, we decided to cancel that service. We discovered that very few users on our site were using these features and that we couldn’t justify the cost.
We do our best to direct our resources toward the features that serve the largest audience. Since we are a local news organization, the majority of our time and money go toward local news, features and sports coverage.
