A week from today, French radio station France Culture will launch a new web portal geared at luring the next generation of listeners to the airwaves via the Internet.

"France Culture Plus" as the new site is called, will mix content from campus radio stations with original work created by students specifically for the web platform, selects from the station’s own academically relevant programming, and audio and video recordings of university lectures and events.

The cultural radio station, which celebrates its 50th birthday next year, is not the only heritage media outlet in France to be reaching out to students this fall. Today, national television station France Télévisions announced “francetvéducation,” a free educational platform targeted at students, parents and teachers. At the end of October, daily newspaper Le Figaro also launched a website dedicated to students, www.lefigaroetudiant.fr.

What have been the biggest changes in the media over the last ten years? Will the Internet be held responsible for killing the newspaper? Did a new fragmented audience determine the end of the mass audience?

These are just a few of the questions a new report published on October 11 by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford tried to answer, analyzing  “Ten years that shook the media world”. It covers eight countries across the world from mature media markets - the United States, the United Kingdom, Finland, France, Italy and Germany - and emerging economies Brazil and India.

Clearly, the news industry has undergone a vast amount of change over the last decade. Some trends are long-lived, such as the ongoing fragmentation of most television audience, the decline of paid print newspaper circulation or the rise of Internet access and use. Others are more recent, such as the emergence of a few dominant search engines, the relentless expansion of social media sites and the spread of mobile web access. All these trends have been observed on a global scale; nevertheless they developed differently in different countries accordingly to the peculiarity of each media system.
