  1. 1. In the United States, 50% or more of the city, county and state government reporting is done by newspaper companies. If we go away, so does this reporting. Not good for democracy. 1

  4. 4. “We’re living in a world of infinite inventory. In that world, prices always trend toward zero, and that is our challenge.” ̶ Tony Haile Founder/CEO, Chartbeat 4
  5. 5. 5 To win with advertising, you have to have scale.
  6. 6. 6 Local news and information doesn’t scale in a way that digital advertising can sufficiently pay for newspaper newsrooms.
  7. 7. 7 The Dallas Morning News newsroom is a $30 million enterprise. • 5 billion ads served • $6 average cpm • = $30 million • Last year we served 1.2 billion ads

According to our respondents, 84% had a base of digital-only subscribers that was 15% or less of their paid print subscriber base.
  9. 9. Let’s use The Dallas Morning News to do the math on digital-only subscriptions: • 250,000 paid print subscribers • Charge $9.99/month to 15% of the subscriber base • 37,500 digital-only subscribers $9.99/month 12 months = $4.5 million/year • That’s 5.5% of The Dallas Morning News’ annual print circulation revenues. 9

  17. 17. Step One: Establish a process for “sustaining innovation.” This is different from “disruptive innovation.” “Sustaining innovation” is the practice of improving or extending current products or launching new products you build yourself for the purpose of creating incremental revenues. 17
  18. 18. Step Two: It is not certain that you can outrun the pace of decline of revenue related to paid print volumes only by doing sustaining innovation. Establish a permanently staffed and funded business development unit to make acquisitions of additional channels of marketing. 18
