By Tom Regg Cohn, Associated Press The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Miami Herald and other national publications are flocking to print again, a sign of the country’s shifting demographics as the print era fades.
The Tribune is the most recent to jump ship.
The Chicago Tribune’s parent company, Tribune Co., sold its stock to a private equity group that is building a newspaper empire.
Its parent company also purchased a controlling stake in The Times.
The New Orleans newspaper business is among the most diverse in the nation.
Its membership includes Hispanic, African American and Asian-American writers, editors and staff, as well as journalists from around the world.
But its business model has also become a target for the rising print industry.
A wave of new subscriptions is the latest sign of a shifting population, a trend that is driven by the growing importance of smartphones, social media and digital video, which are increasingly used by people with limited or no access to print.
The New England Journal of Medicine reported this week that more than one-quarter of Americans read online daily, which is nearly double the percentage from 20 years ago.
And it has fueled a rise in the number of people who use smartphones, according to a survey by eMarketer, a market research firm.
The rise of digital readers has also made it easier for journalists to connect with the public.
For decades, most newspapers, magazines and online news sites were only available in print.
Today, most news organizations, including the New York Daily News, are now available online.
And the Times has been aggressively expanding its online presence, including with social media, in recent years.
The newspaper has had a rocky start.
In January, the Times announced it would close the newspaper’s flagship newsroom in Chicago because of a shortage of employees.
The paper has also struggled to retain and hire editors and reporters.
And in July, a lawsuit against the newspaper by the National Urban League over its treatment of black and Latino residents filed by the newspaper triggered a national uproar.
In its latest quarterly earnings report, the newspaper said it has added about 400 full-time jobs since the end of 2016, but the jobs were not in full-fledged newsroom operations.
The Times said that while it had a “record-high” number of full-timers working in the newspaper, those employees did not report to the newsroom.
The company also is struggling to meet new demand from millennials, whose purchasing habits have become increasingly digital.
In a 2016 survey by research firm Nielsen, 52% of millennials surveyed said they use smartphones to read the newspaper.
More than 60% of them have seen an article published online, which has been a huge boon for a company that had struggled to compete with other media companies in print for advertising dollars.
As a result, the company has been spending money on technology to increase its digital reach.
Last year, the paper launched an app called the Times Now that allows readers to keep up with news and events, as it does with traditional print.
In addition to the digital push, the news organization has been trying to improve the way it operates in print, a process that is taking longer than expected because of the digital revolution.
As the newspaper seeks to become more accessible to readers and the digital economy, it is investing more heavily in content, including on-site newsroom production.
For the past year, Times editor Bill Keller has been conducting extensive interviews with journalists about how the paper is changing.
And he has held regular meetings with newspaper publishers, hoping to identify areas where the company can improve.
In a memo to staff and reporters released Monday, Keller wrote that the newspaper is “currently focused on the digital future of our business and our business process,” which is “not a distraction from our core journalism mission and core values.”
The memo noted that in the future, the New Orleans paper could expand its online newsroom, adding about 50 full- time staff members.
The Times also said it is making significant investments in its newsroom automation and new technology, including digital audio and video production, to streamline the process of producing and editing news.
It said it also has started investing in new technology that can help automate newsroom processes, like a new digital-first newsroom management system that can provide real-time information about when a reporter is scheduled to deliver a story.
