Plenty of life in newspapers yet

Northern Echo editor Peter Barron believes that there is plenty of life still left in newspapers.

Hold the front page reports that Barron,taking part in a debate about the future of the regional press staged at London’s City University said that,

We are obviously facing a digital future, but I still think newspapers have a future for at least 10-15 years."

Writing on his blog he continued

A paper like The Northern Echo still has a healthy, loyal readership and it is attracting more and more readers to its website.
Advertising is well down on a year ago, thanks to the recession, but showing signs of improvement - fingers crossed that the economy goes the right way.
