Fianna Fáil proposes State funding for newspapers

Following the pre-internet herd to the grave.

I reckon what's left of FF after the next election will split. There's no way the soldiers of destiny would accept being the established coalition prop.

Irish ABC Newspaper Circulation January-June 2018

http://www.ilevel.ie/media-blog/print/1 ... -june-2018

Quote:
The ABC’s for the first half of 2018 were released earlier today. It shows that the newspaper market had contracted by a further 7.1% over the year. The market annual rate of decline hasn’t been below -6% since 2009 and that’s a statistic that doesn’t need further commentary. The Morning market was down slightly more than the Sunday.

The stark reality for the industry is that newspaper circulation has halved over the past decade alone.

I think polishing a turd is the appropraite phrase.

No. The right phrase is: "Welcoming a True American"

The Irish Times managed to replace all of its print losses with digital subscribers. I have no idea if these are more or less profitable.

It's a complete horrorshow for the Indo and Examiner.

In five years I would say the print version of the IT will still exist with the Examiner being rolled into its 'Munster' edition. A combined IT&Examiner will probably survive in digital format, probably with a slightly tighter paywall.

The Indo is rapidly heading for freesheet status as its older buyers die off. It takes about 10 minutes to read whenever I pick up a free copy in a pub or hotel. The Times Ireland and Irish Daily Mail actually break more stories than the Indo does these days.

Presumably one print customers per year is €13.2 per week by 52 weeks which is nearly €700. A digital subscription can be got for as 'little' as €150.

The marginal cost of a digital subscriber is close to zero.

Meanwhile print readers need a big chunk of paper at thir newsagent by 7am every day. Some of printing and distribution is fixed cost but a lot is variable.

On the other hand advertsers pay more for paper space than digital space.

VAT is higher on digital subscriptions than physical copies.

Hence why I think estimates of profitability are guesswork.
