More Online than Print by 2011

Online advertising sales will overtake print advertising by 2011, according to Veronis Suhler Stevenson. VSS forecasts annual online advertising growth of more than 21 percent, reaching $62 billion in 2011, compared to print advertising's forecasted $60B.

TV ad revenues will still hold the top spot at a predicted $80B in 2011. "The path of online advertising and newspaper advertising is a continuation of what we’ve been observing for many years, but it is finally getting to the point where the lines will cross," says VSS's James Rutherfurd.

The study notes that in 2007, the amount of time spent reading online will overtake time spent reading newspapers for the first time. Overall media use was down 0.5 percent in 2006 to 3,530 hours per person, while workplace media usage jumped 3.2 percent to 260 hours per employee per year.
