Tyrone Times to close as JPI Media axes 10 titles

 Cookstown-based newspaper Tyrone Times is set to close, as its publisher looks to secure the "long-term stability of the business".

Tyrone Times is one of ten regional newspapers to be shuttered, owners JPI Media have announced.

The publisher said no jobs would be lost in the process, with affected staff to be moved to its other titles.

Newspapers are a dying breed. They need to adapt quickly. Those that do, will survive. Those that don't, well extinction awaits.

Newspapers are dead, people read everything on their phones and there's so much available across the web any sort of paid for service will struggle, even the likes of the Guardian and that are having to beg for people to pay the subscription.

The fact there are also computer programs out there using algorithms to extract details of a story from a legitimate web source and automatically rewording it, so it is original content and then publishing it to their website crowd the market out,  its done in seconds, its always up to date and cost pretty much nothing when set up. This is why there are so many shitty little news sites about.

The North West News Group stepped in when the Dungannon Observer folded with the Dungannon Herald. Could be room for a Cookstown Herald?
