Fairfax Media is reportedly deciding whether to cease printing its flagship newspapers, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. These latest reports beg the question – how do you read your morning news?
According to The Australian, over 200 fulltime journalists might lose their jobs if these major newspapers cease printing. Instead, Fairfax could adopt a digital only approach, meaning everyday Aussies would consume more media on their iPhones, iPads and tablets.
Fairfax is also preparing a major restructure and cost-cutting program this year, following closure of its London newspaper, The Independent. Spokespersons for Fairfax declined to comment further yesterday.
