As 2013 approaches, many of us are thinking about what the new year will bring for news organizations.

Ken Doctor

The cycle of reinvention that has been driving newsroom change for the past decade continues to yield new digital tools and tricks, generating some much needed enthusiasm and creating a micro industry for digitally minded journalists and marketers.

Designer Mario Garcia sees 2013 as a year when editors and publishers move into a more practical and positive space, implementing ideas, finding a niche for their printed products and concentrating on brand extension and storytelling.

Among those commentators now gazing into their crystal balls, there seems to be agreement that mobile offers sustainability and it is likely that some publishers will respond by printing their products less frequently in 2013, cutting costs significantly. Even so, the gap between print and digital revenues is still an uncomfortable issue that underpins any discussion about the future. It is this that is currently driving editorial budget cuts and redundancies on even the most forward thinking and digitally focused newspapers.
