‘WSJ’ Available at Choice Hotels Beginning January 2011

The Wall Street Journal will be available to guests upon request at the 3,700 Choice Hotels in North America starting January 1, 2011. Rather than distributing a newspaper to every guest, Choice Hotels gives guests the option to take a paper.

USA Today has been the “preferred paper” of Choice Hotels, and will continue to be an option in 2011, a spokesperson told Reuters. The WSJ overtook USA Today as the largest paper in the U.S. in 2009.

USA Today recently announced more than 100 layoffs and a series of changes in an effort to adapt to the changing media landscape.
