the NEWSPAPER EXTINCTION TIMELINE…

dispatch: the end of the world as we know it

by ROSS DAWSON

Back in August I predicted that newspapers in their current form will be irrelevant in Australia in 2022. That received significant international attention including from The AustralianThe GuardianEditor & Publisher (which called me the ‘Wizard of Aussie’) and many others.

Part of the point I wanted to make was that this date is different for every country. As such I have created a Newspaper Extinction Timeline that maps out the wide diversity in how quickly we can expect newspapers to remain significant around the world. First out is USA in 2017, followed by UK and Iceland in 2019 and Canada and Norway in 2020. In many countries newspapers will survive the year 2040.

The Australian has again covered this in a story title Deadline for newspapers as digital publications rise. There may be some more coverage in coming days.
