The news source’s executives recently discussed plans to charge fees for its website.
New York (WiredPRNews.com) – Executives of the popular news publication The New York Times recently discussed plans for charging fees to online readers. As reported by AFP, the executive expressed the belief that the addition of fees next year would not have a significant impact on website traffic, in regards to decreasing numbers.
Martin Nisenholtz, senior vice president for digital operations at the news source, is quoted by AFP as stating, “We are, and have been for quite a long time, the largest newspaper-owned website in the world. We intend to remain the largest newspaper-owned website in the world.”
As noted in the report, The Times Co. previously announced plans to begin charging online readers after providing them access to a certain number of news articles for free. Nisenholtz is further quoted as stating of the model, “We have reached a point where we have enough scope and scale to make this move… The metered model will allow us to remain a very, very large website at the same time as we get a second revenue stream.”
