Try An Ad In The Leader Study reports drop In weekly newspapers What is happening to weekly newspaper — the so-called "grass roots" of American journalism? Between 1950 and 1959, 788 of these papers simply "died," according to findings of a study made at the State University of Tope, Bauer to compete Iowa. That was a decade which brought many new developments in mass communications media — the spurt of television and new concepts in radio, the daily newspapers, and motion pictures. The study of the weekly news- a week in non-metropolitan areas. It did not include newspapers published once a week in the suburbs of large cities. In 1950, the study disclosed, there were 6,548 "country" weeklies. Nine years later, the number had dropped to 5,845, a net loss of 703 (even taking into account the new papers which had begun publishing). Nearly half of that loss was in communities of less than 1,000 population. And nearly 95 per cent of the remaining country weeklies were in communities of only one newspaper; they had no competition from either a daily newspaper or another weekly. In those communities of less than 1,000 population where the local weekly stopped publishing, Peterson said, "these communities are without any local newspaper. It is a loss that they will feel seriously, for even though a neighboring newspaper may provide coverage of news in that community, such coverage seldom approaches -that provided by a local newspaper. Nor does it seem likely that many of these towns under 1,000 population will have a newspaper again . . " Peterson's survey also disclosed that, for the most part, the "lost" weeklies were older newspapers: only 22.3 per cent of those going out of business had been established since 1935.
