News App Lets Readers Subscribe to Specific Journalists
Posted: 2/14/2013 | By: Rachel McAthy | Journalism.co.uk
A news app which offers readers subscriptions to specific journalists has been launched following the closure of a free Dutch newspaper.
The print newspaper De Pers was closed last year "because of a lack of advertising", former editor-in-chief Jan-Jaap Heij told Journalism.co.uk. Now Heij is managing director of DNP, a news app which has adopted the model of "the journalist as the brand".
