The Boston Globe has more digital subscribers than print ones, the Boston Business Journal reported.

In the first quarter of  2019, weekday print subscribers went from 108,719 to 98,978, an 11 percent decline year-over-year. Meanwhile, digital subscriptions went from 107,902 to 112,241 as of March 31, the business publication reported. The numbers came from Globe filings to the Alliance for Audited Media.

The switch is a first for a daily regional paper, the Boston Business Journal said.

A Globe digital subscription costs $360 a year after starting discounts, according to Nieman Lab. That’s among the highest in the market and tops subscriptions to The Washington Post and New York Times, the Nieman Lab says.
