Williams-Grand Canyon News converting its website to subscription-based access Oct. 8
WILLIAMS, Ariz. — Our journalists take pride in what they do for the community each day. The work that goes into gathering, fact-checking and publishing those stories is of great importance to us, and we strive to make them interesting and useful for the people who live here. But maintaining such a large effort every day takes a significant investment.
Thus, beginning Oct. 8, only digital and print subscribers will be able to fully access all news stories and features on the Williams-Grand Canyon News websites, williamsnews.com and grandcanyonnews.com.
How much will it cost?
Current print edition subscribers can receive a free digital subscription after Oct. 8 by activating their login at FreeWGCN.com.
Digital-only subscriptions will be available after Oct. 8.
Our staff will continue to focus on local news. However, with this website change the News is also expanding its online coverage by offering more local, regional, state, national and international news, along with additional online features such as more breaking news briefs, videos, galleries, interactive graphics, online maps, audio extras, events and more.
In addition, all website subscribers will have full access to the News e-edition website and archives which allows readers to view searchable, 3D page-flip versions of the newspaper pages as they were printed.
What do I need to do?
After Oct. 8, those desiring to continue reading the complete online news editions on williamsnews.com or grandcanyonnews.com can register on the website and select from several affordable subscription offers that provide unlimited access.
The homepage of the websites will still be visible to all visitors, along with some public safety and community alert stories that will remain free. But the majority of daily news reports and other content will require users to purchase a subscription before viewing.
New subscribers can choose to purchase digital-access-only, or combination print-plus-digital packages.
