It’s been nearly a year since the Charlotte Observer and the other McClatchy newspapers started to require a subscription either to the print or digital edition if you want to read more than 15 stories per month. How’s that working out? Not so well. Per the McClatchy’s third quarter earnings, the company now has 31,000 digital-only subscribers. No, that’s not 31,000 digital subscribers for the Charlotte Observer, that’s a total of 31,000 paid digital subscribers between all 30 of the company’s daily papers.
