This report focuses on South Africa’s R20bn media publishing industry, which incorporates the publication of newspapers, magazines and journals in both print and digital format. In recent years, the traditional print media has been obliged to reinvent itself to avert cannibalisation by digital media sites. Media publishers, already grappling to find solutions to dwindling print circulation and shrinking advertising spend, currently find themselves in a rapidly evolving environment that is driven by the demands of social media savvy consumers who increasingly expect succinct, bite-size snippets of news and immediate news updates. The radical rise of Twitter as a powerful journalistic tool came to the fore during the trials of celebrity athlete Oscar Pistorius and British ‘Honeymoon Murder’ accused, Shrien Dewani. Other critical issues facing the global media publishing industry include the safety of journalists and challenges to press freedom. These threats came into sharp focus following the beheading of journalists by Islamic State terrorists and the gunning down of the editor and ten other staff members of the French weekly publication, Charlie Hebdo.
