The Los Angeles Times will cut the Calendar section's TV listings grid next Tuesday.

In a note to readers that has appeared in the Calendar section this week,  the Times said the grids would be available online and a TV highlights column would remain in the print edition.

"A searchable and printable TV listings grid, which is updated daily, may be accessed at latimes.com/tvtimes and provides readers with TV listings sorted by home ZIP code," the notice said. "TV highlights will continue to appear in Calendar's print editions. LATimes.com members may sign up for TV Weekly, which is delivered in the Sunday Times."

Nancy Sullivan, a Times spokeswoman, did not immediately respond to inquiries from TheWrap asking whether subscribers would be charged an additional fee for the "TV Weekly" insert.

The Tribune Company, which owns the Times and various other newspapers, did not immediately reply to questions about TV grids in its other papers, including the Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun.
