Landmark moment for media industry as Lloyd’s List goes digital-only
Daily newspaper has been providing shipping news for marine and insurance industries since 1734
Wednesday 25 September 2013
Lloyd’s List, regarded by many as the world’s oldest continually published newspaper with a print history dating back to 1734, is going digital-only in a landmark moment for the media industry and the City.
The daily paper has been providing shipping news for the marine and insurance industries since the days when a daily notice was pinned on the wall of Edward Lloyd’s coffee shop.
Publisher Informa said it was only axing the print edition in December after consulting readers — 97 per cent said “their preferred way of accessing business information is online”.
Editor Richard Meade said it could offer more to readers online and on mobile 24 hours a day.
Asked if he felt sad at the demise of print, Meade responded: “No. I’ve been waiting to do this since I took over as editor nearly three years ago. It needed to happen.”
Lloyd’s has only 25 print-only subscribers, although it has a print circulation of 1250 as some readers get print and online versions. It has 16,624 paying digital subscribers.
