Sulzberger: Internet Can Drive Newspaper Growth

“… It’s not that the Internet is eroding the newspaper market but that newspapers have gained a new medium to deliver information,” NYTCO Chairman Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. told Korean reporters during the 58th World Newspaper Congress in Seoul. Talking about the upcoming Times Select subscription plan, Sulzberger stressed that about 90 percent of the current online content would remain free. But, he explained, “We want to make sure that as we make a transition from a print-based to digital-based business, we have to be finally viable so that we can continue to meet our mission of offering high-quality news and entertainment services.”
Readers outside the U.S. account for about 16 percent of NYTimes.com traffic.
