Bothell-Kenmore Reporter transitions to subscription model

The pre-paid subscriptions will be $39 a year or $3.99 monthly.

The Bothell-Kenmore Reporter will be undergoing a shift in the way they deliver the local community newspaper on July 1.

Like many other newspapers, the Reporter has had to re-examine the way they deliver the weekly newspaper amid the technological changes and shifting economics of the area.

The Reporter will continue to provide its readers with a fair and balanced connection of what’s going on in their community, only not all residents will continue to receive the newspaper past the date transition. The Reporter will move to a paid subscription model effective July 1.

“This is something that had to happen at some point. Being proactive rather than reactive will make a really big difference in the success of [the paper],” said regional publisher Eric LaFontaine.

Pre-paid subscriptions are $39 a year or $3.99 a month. Each paid subscription provides readers with unlimited digital access to all seven Eastside newspapers, including the bothell-reporter.com site, unlimited digital access to all seven Eastside newspaper e-editions, and their choice of print publication to be delivered dry and on time (Friday) through the United States Postal Service. The paper will also be in newstands for $1.

“If someone in Bothell or Kenmore wanted to have the Redmond Reporter delivered to them, they could have that,” LaFontaine, said. “If they work in Redmond, but live in Bothell, they could even have their Reporter delivered to them in Redmond at work. The idea is provide unlimited access to things that are important to the reader regardless of location and access. This includes a mobile experience as well.”
