Video killed the radio star — so what about newspapers

Video killed the radio star.
Remember that song? It wasn't especially good but it had a message that can be seen today.
The song is the first video shown on the debut of MTV in 1981 and celebrates the golden age of radio. Ironically the music video paved the way for a big change in the way people listened to their music.




Here's another remember when for you; waiting on the newspaper to arrive, flipping to your favorite section and reading.
Yes, reading printed material. Good for one day's worth of news.
TV delivered their news two-to-three times daily. Then along came the Internet. Hey, now we can find out what's going on if we missed the slotted times.
Competition began to grow as technology branches out. You can get your news instantly on your cell phone.
What’s next?
Update the Internet. Quick. Hurry up. People need to know what's going on in their world.
Now newspapers are online. The printed material is available for free a majority of the time, with numerous updates during the day.
This forces newspaper reporters to write a breaking story swiftly and accurately and send it to the masses via Internet.
Later in the day, after all the TV stations have covered that same story, the newspaper story will be rewritten with the most up to date information available as it should be.
Newspapers across the nation are forced to downsize their staff, some are forced into bankruptcy and others will rely on the Web alone to convey the news.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, founded in 1863, published their last print newspaper on March 17 then moved to a strictly online format.
Is this the demise of the newspaper as we know it?
Even if I weren’t employed as a journalist I’d still want to reach for my newspaper. It’s ingrained in me. I’d watch my father read the paper as a little kid and soon I was reading too.





I have photo albums with newspaper clippings from way back. Photos from whatever softball team I was on a the time, clipped out and saved. Interesting articles and stories about family members and friends. A snapshot of a moment in time preserved to show future generations of my family.
Others may argue that the same can be done on the Internet and I agree. I surf for news all the time but I still prefer the printed material.
So tell me how you feel about newspapers.
Do you feel newspapers are dying?
What’s in the future for newspapers?
Would you rather get all your news from the Internet or mobile device?
Where will newspapers be in a year, five years, 10 years?
Yea, I’m asking a lot but I really want to know.
