The struggles in the newspaper business have been widely reported with drops in advertising and cuts in work force. But perhaps the most distressing sign came today, with the announcement
that the owners of Editor and Publisher — the journal that has covered the newspaper business very well for more than a century — will be closed.
Of course, perhaps it is just because magazines have been hit harder than newspapers and a magazine covering an industry undergoing such change provides little inspiration to keep it afloat.
I don't necessarily think the newspaper industry is dying, though its current form certainly is. It is undergoing a significant change, some calling it a revolution.
I'm tuned in to see how this one turns out, though it'll be harder with the fine folks at E&P.
