No recovery in sight for Italian print journalism

Dailies, magazines suffer double-digit declines in revenue

(ANSA) - Rome, April 16 - There is no recovery in sight for Italy's enfeebled print-journalism industry, a report issued Wednesday said. Last year revenues for newspapers and magazines both suffered double-digit declines, with advertising revenue down nearly 20%, according to Italian newspaper and magazine publishers federation FIEG. "In the last month of 2013 and the first part of this year, there were signs of economic recovery in the country," said the report, which stressed however that the recovery will "have a very limited impact on print journalism, where problems are both structural and cyclical".
