Arthur Sulzberger, owner and publisher of The New York Times:

“I really don’t know whether we’ll be printing the Times in five years, and you know what? I don’t care either,” he says.

Quoted at Haaretz.com, which has published an interview with Sulzberger from the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. (Haaretz is an English-language Israeli newspaper.)

Sulzberger also said:

“We aren’t ignoring what’s happening. We understand that the newspaper is not the focal point of city life as it was 10 years ago.

“Once upon a time, people had to read the paper to find out what was going on in theater. Today there are hundreds of forums and sites with that information,” he says. “But the paper can integrate material from bloggers and external writers. We need to be part of that community and to have dialogue with the online world.”
