The Capital Times is ditching the environmentally unfriendly medium of newsprint, and will be transitioning to their already popular website. I personally think this move is a little premature since there is still a very large number of people that enjoy their newspaper. My guess is their numbers have gotten so bad, that this is more of cost cutting move. They will save money on printing the paper, but I also believe the move to online-only will also result in a lot of cutbacks, especially if they see a lot of “red”.
I applaud the Capital Times for making such a bold move, and plunging head-first into a new era of journalism for the paper. Unfortunately, I see a lot of people losing their jobs.
