Library Late - "Can newspapers survive?"

Read All About It! This year marks the 20th anniversary of Newsplan Ireland, the co-operative preservation project for newspapers in Ireland. As part of the National Library of Ireland's celebrations of this anniversary, a special Library Late will take place on Wednesday 27 February.

Can Newspapers Survive?
After little change in the print industry for over a century, the last few years have witnessed a revolution as the internet increases its dominance on the media landscape. Readers’ attention and loyalties have become divided as papers compete with round the clock reporting and unmediated comment. Is this the end of the newspaper? In this evening debate chaired by John Bowman, presenter of Questions & Answers, RTE, leading figures from the world of media will share their views.

Panel members will include: Gerard Colleran, Editor, The Star; James Cridland, Head of Future Media & Technology, BBC; Roy Greenslade, Professor of Journalism, London City University; Noirín Hegarty, Editor, Sunday Tribune; Fintan O’Toole, Assistant Editor, The Irish Times; Gerard O’Regan, Editor, Irish Independent.
