Post-Dispatch editor predicts Sunday-only print publication

As previously announced, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has killed its Saturday newsstand edition. on Friday, Chad Garrison of the alt-weekly Riverfront Times in St. Louis asked Post-Dispatch editor Arnie Robbins about the change, and the future of the paper.
So, how long until the Post-Dispatch (and all dailies for that matter) cease putting out a print publication all together?

"I'm not feeling particularly clairvoyant this morning," responds Robbins. "But I think in the next ten years you could see the elimination of the weekday paper with the Sunday still coming out in print. The rest of the week would be online or delivered through niche products and phone and e-reader apps. We're working on a few of those projects right now that we're excited about."
