Will newspapers be around in 1960?

I spent the morning in reading Dumas, and in wasting time over the Sunday Herald. I wonder whether Sunday newspapers will exist in 1960, or if they do exist whether they will be larger or smaller than at present. They are now a resource for people who read nothing else, but a burden for the rest of the world.
