The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of hard copy newspapers vs newspapers online. The younger generation generally prefers to read their news online via their computer, tablet or smartphone, while the older generation still prefers the print version. While it seems as though the print version is dying, this is not true for small town papers that focus on local news. However, it is important for these papers to have an online presence as well to satisfy all generations. The balance between hard copy and online can be difficult for everyone to accept, including the employees.
