The year saw Punk Rock arrive on the music scene and NME , like other "specialist" publications, was slow in reporting and covering this new music phenomenon. In an attempt to boost sales, the paper advertised for a pair of "hip young gunslingers" to join their editorial staff. This resulted in the recruitment of two journalists who made sure the magazine was completely up to date on this new music style.
Bands who a few months previously had been criticising the NME were now eager to be included. The magazine also became more openly political during the time of Punk. Its cover would sometimes feature youth-oriented issues rather than a musical act. Sales were dropping, and by NME had hit a rough patch and was in danger of closing again.
During this period, the editors at the magazine were split between those who wanted to write about hip hop , a genre that was relatively new to the UK, and those who wanted to stick to rock music.

The authors, Dr. Would the same hold true more widely? To find out, they analyzed official audience data on the New Musical Express NME , a weekly British music magazine that went online-only in March after 66 years in print. The NME 's audience is younger than The Independent 's, perhaps more likely to switch to its online edition when the print version was withdrawn? In fact Thurman and Fletcher found that, just like at The Independent , there was a sudden and substantial fall in the total time spent with the brand: the attention readers were giving to the NME in print did not transfer online once the print edition became unavailable.
Thurman says: "Given that the NME and The Independent differed in many ways—the periodicity and cover prices of their print publications, their reader demographics, and their content, it is remarkable that changes in time spent with the two brands post-print were so similar.
What about the NME 's reach? The study reports that official net weekly and monthly readership did grow post-print—by 19 percent and 27 percent respectively. However, the NME 's average online reader only spends around three minutes a month with the brand. In comparison the NME 's print readers spent an average of 31 minutes a week reading the paper edition of the magazine.
So, what happens to the time readers were spending with a publication in print after that publication goes online-only? This study clearly shows that they are not spending that time with the online version, but it is unclear whether they are turning to other print publications, or other online sources, or completely forgoing the type of information they once consumed in print.
