GRANGEVILLE -- Online readers of the Idaho County Free Press have seen a change this past month with an upgraded website with fresh content, an improved look and a more user-friendly platform.
Next Monday, March 18, changes continue as online users will be required to be subscribers to access their local news. Existing and new subscribers will receive this access as part of their service. Online subscriptions for complete access are available for $36 annually.
“I wish all news could be free,” said Idaho County Free Press publisher, Sarah Klement. “The exclusive content in local news coverage produced by our staff has value, and an associated cost. Subscribers help to support a source of local news for their communities, and this should extend to online consumers, as well.”
The Idaho County Free Press went online with its first website in 2001. Earlier last month, the paper upgraded to a new web provider that offers a streamlined site that is more user-friendly and a clean, attractive design. Along with the existing coverage, the site now offers fresh and unique content daily, more regional news, as well as a community calendar of events to which readers can submit their news and photos.
Print subscribers can access content through the paywall by using their account number listed on their paper and going through the online registration process. For assistance with this, contact the Free Press office, 208-983-1200.
