Print media Evolution

Have you ever subscribed to a newspaper or magazine? When you are in a waiting room with magazines, which ones are you likely to read? Are you likely to stay in bed on Sunday and read the newspaper? Most of us have a favorite magazine or newspaper, even if we are not a subscriber. In this assignment, you will take a deep look into the history of your favorite publication. 

Select your favorite newspaper or magazine and research its history for this assignment.


Write a 500-word summary of the history of your selected publication and the evolution of that type of media.

Address the following questions in your summary:

  • When was the publication first published?
  • Who founded the publication, and where was it first published?
  • Who was the original intended audience?
  • How has the content (e.g., photos, articles, advertisements) changed over time?
  • What impact, if any, has the publication had on American culture?
  • What are your predictions for how the publication will survive or advance in the future? Provide examples.
