The bad economy looks like it may accelerate the end of the daily newspaper. A Denver newspaper just stopped publication and one of the San Francisco papers is considering the same. My guess is we’re going to see one of the businesses that owns multiple newspapers cease operations sometime this year too.
While I think that a newspaper has a place it today’s Internet world, I really haven’t seen papers change that much. They certainly aren’t going to survive by reprinting national AP stories and professional sports scores that people are reading on the Internet a day earlier.
People I’ve talked to still like the Sunday paper for the ads!
