A Letter from Bklyner


Bklyner publisher and editor Liena Zagare announced in a letter addressed to readers that thanks to its 1,745 paid subscribers, the local news outlet is “going to keep publishing.” In December, the website held a subscription drive to keep the publication afloat.

To keep our small, high-impact newsroom sustainable, we calculate that we’ll need 3,000 subscribers — less than 1% of our readers — to support us at $5/month. But with everyone’s help, we are on our way.

Thank you.

The last three weeks have been a nail-biting experience around here — wondering if we can make it, if enough people will care, if enough people will get around to actually pulling out their credit cards to sign up.
