The 10 Major Newspapers That Will Either Fold or Go Digital Next

Over the past few weeks, the U.S. newspaper industry has entered a new period of decline. The parent of the papers in Philadelphia declared bankruptcy, as did the Journal Register chain. The Rocky Mountain News closed, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, owned by Hearst, will almost certainly close or only publish online. Hearst has said it will also close the San Francisco Chronicle if it cannot make massive cuts. The most recent rumor is that the company will lay off half the editorial staff. Still, that action may not be enough to make the property profitable.

    As many companies have thrived in the digital age many have been forced to adapt or in some cases close up shop. As the Internet has grown many companies involved in print media have adapted over the years. No longer does a publication require in-house reporting as images and information is available with the click of a button. This has led to a downsizing in staff and in many cases the same story different places, however the new places are on the screens of computers and cell phones.

    Waking up with a cup of coffee as you read the newspaper is slowly becoming a thing of the past. In this digital age the demand for the most current information is paramount and this can only be achieved through a digital media and not through printed material. The morning headlines are at best hours old and with the Internet available in so many ways people are constantly looking for the latest development in a news story.

    With this ever growing phasing out of newspapers as the only source of information many names that have brought us the events of over a century are now facing decisions that will extend there future or end an era. Although you may have never read an issue, the name of The Boston Globe, The Philadelphia Daily News, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Chicago Sun-Times, the The New York Daily News and others have brought you the news over the years and for those who live in it’s circulation the news may never be the same as stories and images will be brought in from sources worlds away.
