Sunday Times facing the axe?

By johnboy - 28 November 2011 23

Crikey are running a intriguing stubb on increasingly desperate plans to save the Canberra Times.

Canberra Times management are knuckling down to develop a strategy to preserve the storied broadsheet in its current form as circulation and profit plummets.

Newsroom insiders say a brainstorming session at a lakeside Canberra hotel last week discussed several options including moving the paper to a tabloid and the closure of the low-selling Sunday Canberra Times to cut costs.

if it incoporated a digest of the week’s Canberra news.

By which time I could have read most of the local issues on RA. Canberra might not have news breaking at the cracking pace of the big cities, but nor are we a sleepy country town. The print medium is dying, they should be investing in a robust online presence.

Canberra doesn’t need a local paper dedicated to both federal and local issues. Fairfax should market the SMH and the Sunday Age to Canberrans with a local insert. I don’t buy the Sunday CT because it’s so thin, but I buy the Sunday Age sporadically and would buy it regularly if it incoporated a digest of the week’s Canberra news.

I’d be sad to see it go, and I mean that.
