Newspaper Circulation Predictions
If you are still employed in the newspaper industry, the future simply doesn’t look bright for you.
According to Outsell, US newspaper print circulation will decline by 3.5% per year over the next three years. By 2012, only 43 million Sunday newspapers will be sold compared with more than 62 million in the early 1990’s.
For breaking news, 57% of Americans now turn to the internet. Google News reports that, although it sends searchers to newspaper web sites, 44% get their breaking news solely from non-newspaper sites.
