The Denver Post is asking its readers to support local journalism. Starting Jan, 15, any online reader who hits a per-month threshold will be asked to buy a digital subscription, writes Post editorial page editor Chuck Plunkett.
The cost of a digital subscription will be $11.99 a month for those with no subscription.
The move comes amid other changes at the paper. In January, the Post newsroom is moving out of its building at 101 W. Colfax, across from Civic Center at the top of the 16th Street Mall. Most of the newsroom will work from the paper’s printing plant in Adams County.
Parent company Digital First Media will stay in the well-known building on Colfax. The paper’s editorial board, city hall reporter, politics team and others will be next door in the Petroleum Building.
