The Waco (Texas) Tribune-Herald is putting its staff-written local news, sports and databases behind a paywall beginning Sept. 15.
“No longer can we — or should we — expect our loyal print subscribers to buy a ticket while online-only readers ride for free,” Publisher Donnis Baggett said on the newspaper’s Website.
The OnlinePlus digital subscription will cost non-subscribers $9.95 per month, or $1.99 per day for a 24-hour pass.
A subscription or day pass will be required for complete access to the Tribune-Herald’s mobile app, digital replica newspaper and The Data Source, described by Baggett as “our growing one-stop shop of public data and other useful records for McLennan County.”
Remaining free after the paywall is implemented will be all locally produced obituaries; all photo slide shows; all advertising and all state, national and world stories produced by The Associated Press.
