WSJ Moves a Step Closer to Laying Off the Presses

The Wall Street Journal will be combining it’s print and online news operations:

IN YET ANOTHER CLEAR EXAMPLE of the inroads online publishing is making against its traditional print counterpart, Dow Jones announced a reorganization that includes a combined print and online Wall Street Journal news operation.

Dow Jones also signaled its belief in the power of online communications by naming the executive who had been in charge of the company’s electronic publishing operation to head the largest and most influential unit of the newly restructured company.

It’s only a matter of time now before a blue chip Old Media publisher ceases to publish in print (or lays of the presses, as I like to think of it).

Any bets on who it will be?
