Portland Biz Journal changes Web site access

July 22, 2006

Beginning Monday, July 24, the Portland Business Journal will begin rolling out a strategy that will enable its print subscribers to view all news and feature copy of the current print edition on the newspaper’s Web site.

Until now, only a limited amount of content from the print edition has been posted on line, said Publisher Craig Wessel, and the decision to make virtually all content immediately available was made to further enhance the value of subscribing to the Portland Business Journal.

The only features that will not be available for print subscribers on the Web when the rollout is complete will be the weekly edition’s lists and Business Leads, Wessel said. The print edition calendar of events also will not be posted because the Business Journal Web site already has its own electronic business calendar.

Wessel noted that only print edition subscribers will have immediate access to any print edition content, and will be asked to go through a quick online registration process to participate. Subscribers may go to the Portland Business Journal’s Web site at portland.bizjournals.com to sign up for the new service.
