This media system is presented from three different variables: support, reach and property. Data presented diagnose the present situation of Catalan media. At the same time, the evolution perspective permits to observe the transformation process, in front of both a financial and a digitalization crisis. Tools applied have been interviews and searching in documental archives, including corporate information and social networks. A remarkable conclusion is that as traditional media diminished, the number of cibermedia increased after the economic crisis.
