Editor & Publisher Tears Down Paywall, Promotes Adam Tessin to Technology Director

The paywall at Editor & Publisher is no more, as the Duncan McIntosh-owned newspaper-industry magazine announced that more of its original content is now available free-of-charge.

E&P also announced the promotion of Adam Tessin to technology director from Web developer and IT manager for E&P and DMC’s four other publications.

Duncan McIntosh president Duncan McIntosh said:

We have not been big believers in paywalls. Paywalls in name alone connote a psychological negative, which is one reason we have never been big believers. Nielsen had been using one for a number of years, but nothing during the past year has changed our opinion about them. We have removed it to build more traffic and make more of our original content available to our visitors.
