Mobile Delivery of News Continues to Grow in Popularity

Posted By on Mon, Jul 23, 2012 at 1:00 PM

As media consumption continually evolves, one paper is following the current and changing its format.

The University of Texas at Arlington’s (UTA) student newspaper, The Shorthorn, was a daily newspaper for over 40 years. Now, the newspaper will make the most of technology by publishing daily on the paper’s website and taking advantage of mobile apps for phones and iPads. They’ll still print publications, but they will have more in-depth features in the print issues and will only print weekly.

Although print versions of various publications around the nation have migrated to the Internet, there are still newspapers sticking to the tradition of print while they utilize a website. The UA’s very own Daily Wildcat is still printing daily while featuring some articles on their website and updating the Twitter accounts linking to the website.

UTA’s change in news delivery is innovative and smart considering the habits and preferences of the students, but a sinking feeling in my gut does not go unnoticed when I think maybe print might actually dwindle down to something non-existent.
