Print Media Isn’t Dead, It’s Just Moved
Print media isn’t dead, it’s just moved. It may surprise readers outside of South Asia to learn, but the largest circulation English-language paper is not from the UK or the U.S. Instead it is The Times of India.
It turns out that traditional paid-model newspaper subscription readership is alive and well in the sub-continent. Not only that – it is growing. “A recent study from the FICCI [Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry] suggested that the value of the Indian newspaper industry has grown by two-thirds in the past six years,” says consultancy, EY. “In 2005, the total industry was worth $2.64 billion (U.S. dollars). This rose to$4.37 billion in 2010.”
