MARYSVILLE (CBS13) — The Appeal-Democrat announced Thursday it will be erecting a paywall on its site starting on Tuesday as part of a redesign.
The site will offer 50 free page views to visitors for the first month and trickle down to just five free views.
The Marysville-based newspaper says it will offer a “complete news package” on its site.
No pricing for the site or subscriptions was released on Thursday.
The newspaper was a longtime member of Freedom Communications, but was sold on June 1 to a privately owned publishing company called Vista California News Media, a subsidiary of Horizon Publications.
Freedom underwent Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September of 2009, but left it in April of 2010. It was acquired by 2100 Trust in 2012.
