The NY Times has been slashing costs like crazy while beefing up its digital subscriptions to offset a devastating drop in advertising revenue.
Additionally, the media company has ditched a bunch of its investments recently to tighten the focus on its newspaper business.
Profit for the quarter sank to a shocking $2.28 million from $15.7 million a year ago.

Last month, the New York Times Company sold the About Group for $300 million in cash to Barry Diller and IAC/InterActiveCorp.
