The Philadelphia Media Network has announced a series of changes to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and philly.com.
Starting today, Philly.com will require a paid subscription to read content in newspaper format on e-reader devices, although philly.com will remain a free portal.
Also today, the Inquirer has added local coverage to the A section. The A section will also have rotating themes – In Health, In The Economy, In Education and In Politics – on page A3. The business section also has alternating themes including personal finance and investing on Tuesdays and Tech Life on Thursdays.
And beginning February 1, the site will have enhanced deal offerings through Philly Dealyo. And the network has entered into a deal to bring The Onion to Philly streets.
