World’s Oldest Newspaper Goes Digital Only

Lloyd’s List, the world’s oldest continuously published newspaper that was founded in 1734, announced it will put an end to the print edition in December, in favour of digitalisation.

This decision is due to the declining interest in the press, as shown by a recent survey, which found that less than 2% of the customers relied only on the print edition. Indeed, the capabilities of digital are better tailored to suit the contemporary readers needs.
