A newspaper that began life 279 years ago as a notice pinned to a London coffee shop wall, will be available online only from the end of the year.
The last print publication of Lloyd’s List, which carries news for the shipping industry, will be on 20 December.
A survey carried out earlier this year found that only 25 of its customers used the print edition alone.

Magazines continue to struggle with sales of subscriptions and newsstand copies in the first half of 2013, but they have made inroads in selling digital editions, according to data released on Tuesday.
Total paid and verified subscriptions declined by 1 percent in the first half of 2013, and newsstand sales, which are often an indicator of a magazine’s appeal, dropped by 10 percent. Both declines were similar to the overall trend in the same period a year ago.
Among the hardest hit by the drop in newsstand sales were weekly celebrity magazines and women’s titles, which have struggled to compete with rival content online.
