New Yorker, the nation’s best-selling weekly, is launching a new digital subscription service called The New Yorker Plus that will bring the magazine’s print-and-digital editions together under one banner.
The subscription, to be launched today, will provide subscribers with a curated collection of stories and articles across multiple platforms including digital and print.
“The New Yorker is about a singular community of talented people who share an ambition to tell compelling stories that are informed by their world, not their world’s politics,” the magazine said in a statement.
“We’ve taken the leap to build a digital magazine that will be truly the New York Times of American journalism.”
The magazine will offer subscribers a “compelling and informative mix of articles, interviews, columns, and other content that has helped shape our readers’ perspectives on the news, culture, and politics that shapes our country,” the company said.
“Our mission has always been to make the best possible journalism that we can for our readers, and The New York Review is the new home for that mission.”
The New York-based publisher said the service will launch with more than 30 titles, including a mix of journalism and fiction, and the New Yorkers best-sellers, including “The New Jersey Shore,” “The Good Place,” “Inside the Beltway,” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
The company also will launch a digital edition of the magazine with stories from its staff, including former White House correspondent Matt Apuzzo, Pulitzer Prize winner David Remnick, Vanity Fair editor Arianna Huffington, and Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Glenn Thrush.
The new service comes after the company announced a $1 billion acquisition of a company that creates online content for advertisers, and plans to launch its own online magazine, The New Republic.
