2008_07_nytnews.jpgPortfolio reports that the NY Times, in a conference call with analysts about second-quarter earnings, will be raising its newsstand price from $1.25 to $1.50 starting on August 18. It's unclear what the increase for the Sunday edition, currently priced at $4.50, will be ($4.75? $5.00?). The NY Times cut 1.5 inches from its print size last year and its stock has been suffering. Also in the world of the broadsheet, the WSJ is raising its price from $1.50 to $2.00, effective Monday.
