  1. I disagree with that big sweeping brush.

    I think there's still a place for weekly magazines, mainly in areas of high activity / news output. I think weekly magazines should do more to consolidate / summarise the week's (increasing) mass of news and blogs output for weekly review in a measured 'best of' publication – effectively leaving the breaking news for its sister website. Mags like Media Week and PR Week have started doing this – and really well.

    In short – weekly print mags should still exist, but their content focus changes. Granted this will only work in areas of high volume news, but until mobile phones give a near perfect reading experience on the train / tube, the print mag will live on.
