Newspaper Publishing in the US
The Newspaper Publishing industry, historically the primary vehicle for American journalism, has struggled in recent years to adapt its print-focused operations to a changing media landscape. The industry, which excludes online-only publications, remains reliant on its print products for revenue and has declined rapidly as advertisers have shifted their budgets to digital platforms. In a relatively short period, competition against the industry has risen exponentially. As smartphone adoption has surged over the past five years, digital content producers have siphoned readers and advertising revenue from industry publications. Although readership has grown through online editions, it has not been enough to offset the loss of more valuable print subscribers.
The Newspaper Publishing industry produces and distributes print newspapers. Companies that solely publish online news are excluded from this industry.
