Daily News Lowers Newsstand Price

Got a dollar? Got a paper.

NY_DNThe Daily News’ experiment with a higher price tag is over. The paper is lowering its newsstand price from $1.25 to $1.00. The changes will go into effect Jan. 11.

The Daily News raised its price from 75 cents in 2014, much to the delight of rival the New York Post. The Post also sells for $1.00.

In an announcement, the Daily News did its best to further position itself as the complete opposite of the Post.

Daily News president Bill Holiber said “The diversity of this city is a huge part of what makes our journalism great, and we are committed to ensure the community has a voice on issues both locally and nationally.”

The paper also (rightfully so) pointed out its commendable support for gun control and Black Lives Matter. Both are causes the Post openly ignores and sometimes condemns.
