Gannett to expand paywalls across more properties

Gannett Blog
Gannett CEO Gracia Martore didn’t say if the plan will apply to all of the company’s sites, writes Jim Hopkins, who predicts that the company’s “paywall model will be closely watched across the industry because it’s the nation’s No. 1 newspaper publisher. It proceeds cautiously in new initiatives, so a move toward companywide paywalls would be a strong signal that such a strategy is worth pursuing.” || Related: McClatchy, Gannett say ad revenue improved in November (Poynter.org) || Earlier: Pay walls debut at three Gannett papers testing ‘journalism as a service’ (Poynter.org)
