Printed media are developing online versions in a trend for the overall news industry, Chris C. Anderson, senior editor at Huffington Post, said at a university assembly on Tuesday.


Anderson noted that as technology develops, media may need to change according to the reader’s needs – such as introducing online news products, rather than continuing the development of their printed media. Anderson, however, understood that some traditional media organizations may be reluctant to make the switch.


“Maybe your company has been running for more than 150 years, and everybody knows your name in the area. People may wonder why they should have to change and do something differently. However, you do have to do it,” said Anderson.


He cited Newsweek as an example. The magazine announced it would stop printing and only provide readers with an online version. “We will see more and more publication switching to online versions, like what Newsweek has done,” said Anderson.


Anderson added that it is reasonable for media to change, because technology will only advance, and people have to adapt as they have in the past.


“We used to write on stone tablets. Cave men thought writing on the paper things were horrible, but it moved. When radio was around, people asked why they have to watch TV. It’s stupid. And now the internet comes. People are struggling with the online paper, but if you want people to still consume your news, you need to change. Who is going say that we could not wrote on sheets with digital? We may someday push a button and have the next issue,” said Anderson.
