Los Angeles Times Raises Newsstand Prices

Talk about paying more for less. After slashing staff, budgets, freelance rates and page counts, the LA Times is raising the price of its print edition.

The cost of the weekday paper will increase to $1.00 from 75 cents. The Sunday edition will increase from $1.50 to $2.00. Changes go into effect on Labor Day.

So far we’ve seen mention of the price increase in the Washington Post, The Sacramento Bee, Newsday, and NBC Los Angeles. But we can’t find any information in the LA Times itself.

The paper last increased newsstand prices two years ago. when it went from 50 to 75 cents for the weekday edition.
