Discussion at the annual World Association of Newspapers focused this year on how to integrate print and online newsrooms, and how to turn web readers into advertising dollars.

One session looked at the aging demographics of newspaper readers and asked a provocative question: “Should newspapers forget about the young?” In some cases, the conference heard, the answer is yes. Philip M. Stone covered the conference for followthemedia.com. Read his full story about the youth debate at the link below.
