Christian Science Monitor goes web

leave a comment »

It starts at the niche

The 100 year old, and Pulitzer prize winning Christian Science Monitor will no longer be a daily newspaper in 2009.  It’s enhancing web production and will publish a weekly digest instead.

The paper is funded by the church, but loses nearly $20m a year.  It’s definitely a niche publication, I doubt many outside the states who are not in journalism have heard of it.  But I can guarantee more mainstream publishing peers will be closely watching how it handles the transition.
