WATERTOWN — The Watertown Daily Times and Northern New York Newspapers have launched a new website, NNY360.com. The website is a replacement for watertowndailytimes.com and the websites of weekly newspapers in Jefferson, St. Lawrence, Lewis and Oswego counties. NNY360 is one news and advertising information sharing website for all of the north country. It will be subscription based, but will be open to all readers for no charge through Aug. 1. Readers who do not subscribe to the full print edition will be charged $9.99 per month for access, and those with Sunday-only and other partial print subscriptions, will be offered discounted rates.
“This is a great investment in the digital future of news reporting,” said Alec E. Johnson, managing editor of the Times. “This has been an exercise in bringing our full news reporting staff onto one team. It is the largest news reporting team in the north country and NNY360 gives us a strong, updated platform to share the news that matters most to our readers.”
Starting today, the websites for the Watertown Daily Times and all Northern New York newspapers weekly publications will redirect to NNY360.
There has never been a greater demand for local news content. The newspapers will now provide it in a more effective manner to reach readers who use their cellphones, tablets and computers more regularly than a printed newspaper.
The website is not merely a replica of a day’s newspaper, it is its own content channel that will be updated and adjusted based on news and events of the day.
The new website, NNY360, will have more content that previously was spread over several websites.
