NY Times publisher: Our goal is to manage the transition from print to internet – Haaretz – Israel News

I haven’t seen this interesting interview with NYT Publisher Arthur Sulzberger reported anywhere but this Israeli publication. Notable in that it is a very strong statement that the paper model is very, very shaky:

“Given the constant erosion of the printed press, do you see the New York Times still being printed in five years?

“I really don’t know whether we’ll be printing the Times in five years, and you know what? I don’t care either,” he says.

Sulzberger is focusing on how to best manage the transition from print to Internet.

“The Internet is a wonderful place to be, and we’re leading there,” he points out.

The Times, in fact, has doubled its online readership to 1.5 million a day to go along with its 1.1 million subscribers for the print edition.”
