Print in Jeopardy as Sales Fall at The Independent

The Independent’s future in jeopardy as sales fall to alarming level | Media | theguardian.com.

“The Indy’s circulation has fallen to a level that no longer makes the paper a viable proposition”. Newsstand sales are just over 43,000, when there are 41,000 newspaper retail outlets in Britain. That’s just one sale per stand.

It faces oblivion as they are losing circulation on a weekly basis.

Is this another nail in the way of newsprint? Or is it just a shakeup in the media?

I suspect that its all going to be digital with pockets of specialty print and special market publications for off line consumption. Pitty – I love printed material and still buy the Globe and Mail at least once a week. Nothing like coffee and catching up with world as they unfold in the printed page!
