Courier-Journal going to online pay wall

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Courier-Journal in Louisville plans
to start charging online users for access to all content in print,
web, mobile or tablet platform.

In an announcement Thursday, Courier-Journal publisher Wesley
Jackson wrote (http://cjky.it/KO7CeB ) that the subscription
options will range from full access, including seven-day delivery
of the print edition, to digital only. The new subscription plan
goes into effect in June.

Jackson also wrote that an e-Newspaper, an electronic replica of
our print edition, will allow readers to read page-by-page
electronically on computers or tablets.

Nonsubscribers will have access to a limited number of free
articles on courier-journal.com each month. Some pages, including
section fronts, obituaries, Cars.com and Careerbuilder.com, will
remain accessible to nonsubscribers.

Jackson said subscribers will receive letters explaining their
options and some may see an increase in price.
