The New York Times continues to prove that when in doubt, bank on good reporting. In an announcement, Times executive editor Dean Baquet said that the paper now has “more subscribers than at any time in our 164-year history.”
Last August, the Times passed the one million digital-only subscriber mark. It also has 1.1 print and digital subscribers, bringing its total to roughly 2.1 million (and counting).
“Many news organizations, facing competition from digital outlets, have sharply reduced the size of their newsrooms and their investment in news gathering,” wrote Baquet. “But The New York Times has not. We have our subscribers to thank for that.”
