When I heard that Press Gazette was switching to publishing once a month, with a features-led magazine, I thought it sounded like a good plan. It was exactly the sort of solution that could save a title – moving upmarket with a more analytical bent. So, I thought, I’d swing by and subscribe while I was on the site.
How much to subscribe? £115. That’s £7.67 per issue on the current “15 for the price of 12” offer or an eye-watering £9.58 without the offer. That’s frankly insane. They’re either relying on corporate subscriptions – not a good idea in the current financial climate – or they seriously over-estimate how much disposable income the average journalist has.
I’d love to support the new-style Press Gazette – but at that price, there’s just no way I can.
