Trends of the Times

For years, my morning routine included a walk to the curb to retrieve the day’s news wrapped in bright blue plastic. But the NY Times delivery person never seems to arrive on time anymore, so I have turned to the NY Times iPhone app as my coffee companion instead. While I miss the experience of a big sheet of paper, I am rewarded with the most up-to-date news, links to relevant articles, and a truly awesome virtual reality section. And let’s face it, I have arrived where so many have landed long ago: paperless news. A recent report outlined a series of broad changes at The Times, including a reimagining of the print newspaper and a heightened emphasis on graphics, podcasts, video and virtual reality. They are also shifting the balance away from print-focused roles, hiring journalists with more varied skills to deepen engagement with readers as a way to build loyalty and attract subscriptions. “Our future is much more digital than print,” David Leonhardt, a Times columnist, says. And it is beginning to show in the company’s bottom line. Last year, The Times generated nearly $500 million in purely digital revenue, up from $400 million in 2014. In an era awash in fake news, this is an encouraging trend and a positive sign for the future of professional journalism and the survival of the NY Times. (Photo courtesy of Wired)
