Question: Will Print Media Become Obsolete?

Are print newspapers dying?

By March 2018, it was acknowledged that the digital circulation for major newspapers was declining as well, leading to speculation that the entire newspaper industry in the United States was dying off.

The number of newspaper journalists has decreased from 43,000 in 1978 to 33,000 in 2015..

Do newspapers have a future?

Indeed, do they have any future at all? The simple, intuitive answer has to be no. There is not an industry anywhere that could cope with that rate of reduction, and survive. In most cases, circulations are a fraction of what they were only a few years ago.

What day do newspapers come out?

Most newspapers are “morning editions.” They are published in the early morning, typically 1–4 am, and delivered within three hours or so. Some papers are “evening editions,” published in the early afternoon and delivered by 6 pm. Most major cities used to have both morning and evening papers.

The reason is that internet access, advertising, corporate ownership, and social media are playing as huge contributors to the decline in newspaper production. The invention of the internet meant losses in revenue in print newspaper.
