AT&T proposes doing away with printed White Pages

St. Louis, MO. – Every year you can expect to see your name in print in at least one place--the phone book.

But now AT&T officials say they want to stop printing and delivering the White Pages in St. Louis and Kansas City .

The company must first get the approval of the Missouri Public Service Commisison.

Under the proposal, the Yellow Pages would still appear each year at your doorstep.

And if you wanted a copy of the residential directory AT&T says it still would provide one for free.

KWMU's Maria Altman asked AT&T spokesman Kerry Hibbs what prompted the plan.
