Good journalism does not come for free.
For 175 years, our subscribers and advertisers have provided the funds necessary to make the Akron Beacon Journal informing, engaging and essential for our communities in Northeast Ohio.
On Tuesday, July 1, the Akron Beacon Journal will begin charging for online content on Ohio.com for nonsubscribers.
Nothing changes if you already are a home-delivery subscriber to the Beacon Journal. Your newspaper will arrive at your doorstep each morning as it has, and you will have unlimited access to Ohio.com on the browsers from your desktop, tablet or smartphone. You also will gain access to an online replica edition of the newspaper that can be viewed in your browser or on a free app from the iTunes or Google Play stores, depending on the type of smartphone you own.
