Providence Journal Lowers The Boom On Us Freeloaders Tuesday
… so the ProJo itself announced earlier today.
Starting on Tuesday, The Providence Journal will begin charging some subscribers for access to the newspaper’s digital editions.
I came across the announcement just now while browsing Rhode Island news. But readers of “On Politics” with Ian Donnis and Scott MacKay would have learned about it three full days ago as MacKay had obtained and shared the contents of
a memo sent to ProJo employees from Deb Tomlinson, the newspaper’s vice president for audience, business development and digital
which included a description of the various pay options that the ProJo will offer.
… the Journal will begin charging for “new subscription packages’’ that include a choice of print-only, a hybrid of print and digital, or digital only subscriptions. And customers will have options for either a seven day and weekend subscription or a Thursday-Sunday package or Sunday only home delivery.
