ProJo's Sister Paper Launches Pay Wall

Ted Nesi over at WPRI has the details on the newly erected "pay wall" at the ProJo's sister paper, the Dallas Morning News:

The Providence Journal’s sister paper, the Dallas Morning News, will begin charging readers to access some of its content online next month, the paper reported today – and the Morning News’ plan may signal what the "Diet Projo" paywall plan will look like when it starts this year.

The Morning News will offer two subscription packages:

Print+digital: The price of a print subscription, which buys delivery of the newspaper plus full access to its digital offerings, rose 13% to $33.95 per month ($407 annually) on New Year’s Day.

Digital-only: The price of a digital subscription – which buys a daily e-edition, stories behind the paywall on, and iPad and iPhone app access – will be $16.95 per month, or $203 annually.

So what’s going to go behind the paywall and what will remain available to anybody? “Subscriber content will include proprietary news and information produced by The News,” the paper explained. “Headlines, breaking news, most blogs, obituaries, classifieds and nonproprietary content such as syndicated wire stories will remain free.”
