Maybe I am missing something, but shouldn’t they have already done this?
The American Society of Newspaper Editors is consider removing the world ‘paper’ from the organizations name. Changing it to American Society of News Editors. I agree this with BuzzMachine and say we are in the post-paper era. The name newspaper or magazine or broadcaster or even radio in the future simply will refer to the historic roots of an online media business. Interesting to note that the frequency of publication goes from daily/weekly/monthly (newspaper vs. magazine etc) to minutes/seconds online… And there are no schedules online. Note: this riff is going to form part of my ‘digital manifesto for publishers’ look for this post before the end the year.
