HS is the only subscription national newspaper in Finland. Here’s how it gets readers to subscribe.
“At the end of the day travel journalism is service journalism and so you need to do a service to your readers who are very diverse.”
“The readers of our publication can be trusted to weigh in thoughtfully and meaningfully on complex issues.”
Public radio “is in a good position to pick up the slack if the legacy newspaper starts getting squeezed by corporate ownership.”
“Our theory about how you build trust in information is to help people access it on their own.”
“We had all this space in the back that wasn’t being used because we don’t have printing presses anymore.”
“No matter the amount of tweeting or social media promotion that you might do, [the place] where you need to look to grow your audience is existing podcasts.”
“Tell the story without the explanatory commas, as if you’re telling to the person you want to be telling the story to.”
