The print media are communication channels that disseminate
information through letters and pictures printed on paper using
mechanical or technological devices – printing machines. Books,
newspapers and magazines are three major print media categories
for communicating en mass. The dominance of newspapers and
magazines in the print media industry in Nigeria is not in doubt.
Today, newspapers and magazines of all types and with
aesthetically up-to-date layout and design are everywhere in the
country. The growing sophistication of the print media industry,
especially newspapers and magazines, calls for a text that explains
how this industry operates.
