He said: &quot;There&#39;s an argument at the moment going on about the effectiveness of newspapers and magazines, even in their traditional form, and maybe they are more effective than people give them credit( for)&quot;. This is a U-turn on previous presentations made by him. His argument has been that newspapers and magazines generate a disproportionate share of advertising revenues compared to the time consumers spend with these channels. As argued on our website this argument does not include the difference in value of somebody reading an ad in print vs online. Which in turn is translated into a higher rate for print media. Sorrell now states that he has seen some &quot;interesting data&quot; that shows higher consumer engagement levels with newspapers and magazines, as well as their ability to generate more attention and focus, which means readers are likely to retain information.</p> Personalised newspaper available as of July Wed, 01 Apr 2015 18:23:58 +0100 Jelluma) <p>The Walliser Bote, a Swiss newspaper of the Valais region, will shift to be entirely digitally printed.
