New Pay Site Launches In San Antonio

Former San Antonio Express-News journalist Greg Jefferson and former Current editor Elaine Wolff have launched a new site to cover local politics, business and the arts in San Antonio, Texas, reports the Express-News.

Jefferson and Wolff’s site Plaza de Armas will cost $6 a month and focus on local politics.

Express-News editor Robert Rivard told his paper: “There’s plenty of room for a little competition in this market, and we welcome their arrival. They will definitely add to the mix. The question is whether they can be viable as a business. It’s hard to make a buck in digital news.”

Wolff had been with the Current, San Antonio’s alt-weekly, since 2006, and resigned in August 2010. Information on Jefferson’s background was not immediately available.
