Gannett to start charging to read its websites

Gannett, publisher of The Asbury Park Press and 79 other community newspapers throughout the country, announced today that they will emulate The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal by charging their readers to access their websites, according to multiple news outlets, not including The Asbury Park Press.

Readers will be able to read between five and fifteen articles each month before being charged, according to Forbes who covered the investors conference where Gannett announced the news.

The company also announced that they will shed $1.3 billion in cash, distributing it to shareholders through dividends and a $300 million stock buy back.
