The Daily Gazette newspaper has decided to mostly end its experiment with free online content.
Web advertising revenue wasn't enough to justify the perceived threat to its print publication, said Judy Patrick, the managing editor.
Starting Monday, the Schenectady paper will reserve the free section of its Web site for blogs, breaking news and some other features. Only paying subscribers, meanwhile, will have access to expanded online content, including articles that appear in the print edition.
People won't pay for online news, so look for the Daily Gazette to announce another change before long.
