As an author, I am very aware of what is happening with print media in all forms. I don’t know that it will actually die out, but it certainly is reducing every year. Newspapers have laid off considerable numbers of staff, the print edition of some magazines has disappeared. In my opinion, there are a few factors. Online editions can quickly update developments and articles, the current generations do not have the connection to print that previous ones did when the only alternatives were radio, TV and many years ago, week old movie news. But cash is king, and reduced advertising revenues equals less income for the print media. There will be diehards who only rely on print, but the numbers have shifted radically.
