Apocalyptic Twin Cities media predictions!

While perusing MNSpeak this morning we happened upon a post, which at first scan, startled the heck out of us! Further investigation revealed that these were predictions that had been posted on Taylor Carik's Mediation blog, not facts, thus our panic meter went down considerably. However, considering the digital age and the death of print, these predictions, which come with a bit of signature Carik humor, may not be that far off the mark. Our prediction? The LOL/OMG blog will become the next big thing, spurring the country on to speak only in internet slang.

Among the predictions:

Village Voice higher-ups realize they can’t keep up with print costs, but can’t make it on CPM advertising alone, so they either sell or close City Pages.

MSP Communications announces it will “begin to phase out” MSP Magazine.

This is a big one - one of the local TV stations will stop doing news broadcasts before the year is over.
