Prayer couldn't save the Christian Science Monitor, the 100-year-old daily national newspaper, from the rapidly-changing media landscape. In April of 2009, the Christian Science Monitor will stop printing its daily newspaper and change to an online-only, continuously-updated format.

Traditional print newspapers are under siege as the web is capturing more and more eyeballs, but the Christian Science Monitor is the first daily national newspaper in the U.S. to make the move to an online-only format. There will still be a weekly print edition, as in the past, but dropping the daily issue is still a bold move. Stats for Print Newspaper Casualties Trending: Older & Mild
