More than 100 mast heads will become totally digital publications.
"We're not talking to numbers, we're talking about people and we're having those conversations today and tomorrow, so I'm not going to prejudice those conversations, we're going to talk to them individually", News Corp Australia's executive chairman Michael Miller said.
Larger regional papers, such as the Hobart Mercury or NT News, will continue to be published in their print form.
"The closure of so many mastheads represents an huge blow to local communities and, coming off the back of hundreds of previous regional closures during this period, it underlines the seriousness of the crisis facing regional and local journalism".
"Local newspapers have done a terrific job at telling local stories", he told AAP.
He doubted the papers that remained in a digital format would last long, saying coronavirus had forever broken the link between local news and local advertising.
"New ways need to be found to have local news and local scrutiny".
