Beginning today there will be a price to pay for local news content. From the T & G that is. Those who hold print subscriptions will have full access to telegram.com, however those without, will now either have to pay $14.95 per month, or dish out a one dollar bill for 24 hour access to the locally produced news stories.
A slew of readers comments flew in when the Telegram & Gazette announced that those wishing to read local content will have to pay for it. Over 300 opinions were posted ranging from those thinking this will be the beginning of the end for the publication to those saying the price has been set too high.
Non-subscribers will be gifted with 10 free local articles each month. Along with the less than positive reaction of reader comments, a website has been created as a quick guide to what the site’s publisher believes is content not to be missed.
What does this mean for the Telegram & Gazette? What does this mean for Worcesterites? Only time will tell, but we sure can guess in the meantime.
