The New York Times' Future
Much is being written about the future of daily newspapers. Dailies in many cities are failing on a regular basis. I just read about the main daily in Tucson possibly closing after 138 years of publishing.
So what about The New York Times?
My guess is that within five years The Times goes to a tabloid design. Within 10 years it publishes daily as a 16- page tabloid, but produces a hefty Sunday paper full of ads and other special features and sections. Of course hand in hand with this will be the continuous development of a dynamic Web site.
The Wall Street Journal should be able to weather the storm in print. But it too will go tabloid as it has in Europe and Asia for several years. And of course it will be a very slim tabloid.
What will the Internet crush next?
