Howell Raines: The Economic Model Underlying Newspapers Is Dying

Former New York Times Executive Editor Howell Raines stopped by The Digital Age to talk about newspapers. ”I think the economic model underpinning newspapers is inevitably dying,” said Raines, who is now a columnist at Portfolio. ”It’s lasted, frankly, longer than I would have predicted when television came on the scene,” he continued. ”So the challenge for all these papers is to figure out what is the economic model that will keep you doing the same thing that you do well, which is finding out and delivering information.”
