As of today, the Christian Science Monitor becomes a daily online publication. It will, however, begin a weekly edition in two weeks.
In a letter to readers, the paper’s editor, John Yemma, says the Monitor is a “dynamic online newspaper” available around the world, with more than two million online readers a month – 40 times the number of people subscribed to the print daily.
Why the weekly? “Print still works at that frequency. Print is for sitting back, taking a break from the Web, thinking more deeply about ideas and issues.”
The Monitor is also developing a daily news briefing that will highlight top stories available via e-mail.
