Newspaper Reporter Listed as ‘Endangered Job’


Newspaper reporter — along with meter reader, travel agent, lumberjack (sorry Dexter!), flight attendant and more — has been named one of the most endangered jobs of 2014. Even the Dodo went out more gracefully than this.

According to CareerCast, there’s pretty much no hope for the newspaper reporter:

Declining subscription and dwindling advertising sales have negatively impacted the hiring power of some newspapers, while others have ceased operations altogether. Online outlets continue to replace traditional newspapers, and the long-term outlook for newspaper reporters reflects the change.

Well, that’s certainly depressing. Accurate, but depressing.
