So, now our little local paper will be the same rack price as USA Today. What gives? Our sources indicate that it is necessary for them to raise the daily paper price due to decreased sales and subscriptions and because it is necessary to pay for the Jack McElroy Sunshine lawsuit that was filed in Chancery Court last year.
News Sentinel To Increase Its Daily Price
Sources within the metal shed on the hill inform us that effective September 15, 2008 the News Sentinel will increase it’s daily rate 25 cents raising the price per paper to 75 cents. The Sunday paper will remain at $2.00 a copy. Just a few months ago they reduced the amount of paper by decreasing the size of the actually newspaper. Now they are raising the daily price.
