Why news websites charge for access to content
Local news in America is under threat: the financial model for original local news has faltered, as reading habits have migrated from print to digital, and tech companies like Google and Facebook take the lion's share of advertising revenue that used to support local newsrooms. Local newsrooms committed to serving their communities with responsible, responsive, community-focused journalism continue to do the best that they can with shrinking resources.
The family-owned Bangor Daily News relies on subscriptions from readers to support its newsroom. When you support the BDN, you are supporting Maine communities.
As a subscriber, you get digital access to Maine’s only independently-owned daily news voice, invitations to subscriber-only events, occasional subscriber-only deals, a faster site, and a better ad experience.
The Bangor Daily News offers group rates for on-site digital subscriptions for companies and organizations with 10 or more users.
