TIME-less in the Internet Age

TIME magazine, the last of the large weekly news and business publications, will not last in its current form for more than another year or so. A growing mountain of evidence shows TIME will have to cut its publication frequency, lower its subscription base or migrate almost entirely to the Internet.

TIME is the last of the weeklies that were among the most prominent magazines from World War II through the 1990s. TIME, as a matter of fact, was probably the most influential magazine in America after Life magazine closed in 1972, until its position was taken by 24-hour news channels and the nearly universal availability of quality news on the Internet.
