Internet killing newspapers?

A September study (.pdf) by the Online Publishers Association found that 18- to 34-year-olds are far more apt to log on to the internet (46%) than watch TV (35%), read a book (7%), turn on a radio (3%), read a newspaper (also 3%) or flip through a magazine (less than 1%).

And when young people go online, they tend to browse for news in much the same way they window-shop for jeans or sneakers: sampling a headline here, a blog entry there, a snippet of a story there, until their news cravings are satisfied.

Adam L. Penenberg, assistant professor at NYU, wrote an interesting article about this latest phenomena at Wired News.

Looks like RSS feeds, connected PDAs, and Blogs are going to make the news of the future.
