New York Times Will Go Out of Print…EventuallyDecatur Metro | September 9, 2010 | 12:44 pm
Dang. From Mashable…
At a recent conference, The New York Times‘ publisher and chairman Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., stated that he eventually expects the “Gray Lady” will no longer be a physical newspaper.
“We will stop printing the New York Times sometime in the future, date TBD,” he said to attendees of the International Newsroom Summit.
I mean, this certainly shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to anyone that’s got an ear to the rails of print ad-revenue, but to hear it stated so flatly and definitively by the biggest name in the business is still sorta shocking. (Even to the guy who’s continuously trying to grow his ONLINE ad revenue.)
