Newspaper executives see the light at the end of the tunnel for their industry as digital subscriptions start to help revenue pick back up. The New York Times (NYT) has been out in front with its +700K digital subscribers, but peers in the newspaper industry (GCI, MNI, LEE, MEG, AHC, MNI, SSP, WPO) indicate their digital strategy is also paying off by creating new growth channels. Looking ahead five years, the group can't promise news will still be digested at all by consumers with ink-stained hands.

    I just hope the content improves as a former subscriber the proofreading was non-existant. Articles in the editorial section were sloppy at best. The paper that I am referring to is quad city times.

    non-existent
    Reader comments give channel for venting (and actually helping, interactively, with patience) on such issues. Have you considered the digital subscription, if it's at QCT yet? I am a LEE stockholder (giving another channel, as it were) and not a dig. subscriber to any, still buy two local weeklies, newsstand in paper, "freeload" the rest dig.. Actually own five of the listed stocks, like the industry. And have (cautious) hope for it. And wonder about subscribing about daily. Cheers.
