Christian Science Monitor to go online-only

Read it here.

The model that they are proposing is an email Monday to Friday that delivers content on a PDF file (for a price, of course). And a weekly print magazine on high-gloss paper.

Sounds reasonable, and given that CSM is not your usual paper (it is subsidized by the Christian Science Church), the success or otherwise of this model will have lessons for mainstream newspapers.

Here and here are my reviews for CSM.
