Chicago Tribune to Set Pay Wall at $14.99 Per Month
Posted: 10/19/2012 | By: Lynne Marek | Crain's Chicago Business
The Chicago Tribune will erect a pay wall on Nov. 1, asking
subscribers to pay $14.99 per month to read all its online content, but
there will still be a free ride for readers who just want breaking news,
sports coverage or a weather forecast.
The newspaper, a
unit of Chicago-based media company Tribune Co., began telling online
readers today about the new subscription program. Daily print
subscribers will have full digital access for free. Those who get the
paper less frequently can buy it for 49 cents per week.
