Hearst evaluating pay models in other cities

See on Scoop.itDaily Content Highlights

The launch last week of The Houston Chronicle’s premium website marks the first Hearst Corp. newspaper to place content behind a paywall and could herald similar digital initiatives at other Hearst sites.

Lincoln Millstein, Hearst’s senior vice president for digital media, told News & Tech that The Chronicle’s digital strategy is one of a number of options under evaluation by the publisher, but that, “We are contemplating different models for different markets.”

The Chronicle rolled out the new site, houstonchronicle.com, as a companion site to the daily’s existing chron.com website, which will remain free.
