The following excerpt announcement was sent out by USA Today:

Each month, about 90 million unique visitors come to USA TODAY’s digital platforms for investigations that change laws and lives, smart sports analysis, expert science and health reporting, and entertainment and consumer news to help you make the most of your time and money.

We’ve become part of your daily news habit, and we’re honored to serve you.

Now we’re asking our readers to help support premium journalism.

Much of the content on USA TODAY will still be free. But you’ll find a selection of stories each day marked “subscriber only.” These will be exclusive investigations, sophisticated visual explainers, thought-provoking takes on the news and immersive storytelling.

This is a big change; our digital news has always been free. But USA TODAY was founded on boldness.

Your subscription is an investment in quality journalism that’s worth paying for, journalism that strengthens our communities and our nation.

And we’ve got big plans.

We know how busy you are, so – true to our roots – we’re constantly innovating ways to quickly, concisely, expertly deliver news with topical newsletters, daily podcasts, news by text and interactive chats with experts.

If you are a print subscriber to USA TODAY, you already have full digital access. If you have already subscribed to our e-edition or ad-free versions, you’re signed up for digital as well. Not a subscriber?  Become one here. 

We know you’ll have more questions. You’ll find answers here.
