With half its circ gone, USA Today may stop daily publishing within 5 years

It was suggested Wednesday that USA Today may cease publishing as a daily paper within the next five or six years. 

However, quoted in a story from MediaPost, editor-in-chief David Callaway said in a discussion about the "Future of Media" that the paper would continue publishing some sort of print product for years to come. 
If USA Today were to shutter its daily print edition, it would become the second major U.S. newspaper to go online only, following the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which went all digital with drastic personnel cuts in 2009.... 
Over the last decade, USA Today’s average weekday print circulation fell by half, from 2.22 million in the six-month period ending September 2004 to 1.08 million for the same period in September 2014, according to the Alliance for Audited Media, previously known as the Audit Bureau of Circulations.
