Mea Culpa: USA Today’s Print Edition Is Still Very Much Alive

From a story on by Rick Edmonds headlined “Mea Culpa: The print edition of USA Today is still very much alive”:

I was wrong, wrong, wrong. In an October 2019 article, I predicted in slightly hedged fashion that USA Today’s print edition would fold within two years as Gannett and GateHouse completed a merger of their 250-plus regional titles.

Fast forward to May 2022, and that hasn’t happened. USA Today’s print revenues do make up an ever-shrinking share of the total, as Gannett pursues a quicker pace of digital transformation. There are no signs, though, that management plans to kill the print version anytime soon.
