Effective immediately, all content on CraigDailyPress.com is free to all users.
The switch, which went into effect Thursday, eliminates a paywall that was put in place in August 2012. Craig Daily Press General Manager Renee Campbell said the decision to get rid of paid access to news articles and other editorial content was the result of an evaluation of how the system had performed in Craig and Moffat County.
"The newspaper industry is evolving and changing rapidly and online paywalls are being adopted by news organizations around the country as a means to offset losses in print circulation,” Campbell said. “The past year certainly has been a good test for the Craig Daily Press. But our analysis shows that, in our community, offering online content free of charge is the better approach for now."
