Chiefland Citizen online now a subscription-based site

-A A +A

As of today, The Chiefland Citizen website, www.chieflandcitizen.com, is a subscription-based news and information site.
The Citizen will  offer its valued newspaper subscribers complete access to all of the news and features currently in the print product, plus a number of online-only features such as videos, slideshows,
reader interaction and more. A digital version of every issue of the newspaper will also be available to subscribers online.
If you already subscribe to the print product, you’ll be able to access all of the online content for free, but you’ll need to sign up for an account. To do so, go to http://www.chieflandcitizen.com/subscription_services and click the link for “Activate Existing Account.”
You’ll need a number on your subscription label, so have a recent edition accessible when you sign
up. Just fill in the blanks online and you’ll have complete, 24-hour access to our comprehensive news coverage for Levy County.
For readers who are not subscribers, there is a free, 30-day online trial. Sign-up online and see if you like what is offered.
You’ll have the option of becoming a subscriber with access to both the print and online products or the online product only. Look for the “Subscribe” button at www.chieflandcitizen.com.
The Citizen staff remains committed to producing a news product that provides value to its readers.
“An important part of funding our news and information efforts comes from subscription revenue,”
General Manager Tom Ten Broeck said. “We believe it is important readers help pay for these services
regardless of whether they choose to read us in print or online."
Last year, the Citizen and its staff won several Florida Press Association awards that included honors for agriculture news writing, feature writing, sports writing and column writing.
Fred Wilson, a graphic designer at the Citizen, was honored by FPA for his creative work in 2009.
The Chiefland Citizen is the largest circulated newspaper in Levy County and covers news across the county.
Instead of waiting for a weekly edition of the newspaper, online subscribers will have access to frequent news and updates from the Citizen.
Readers who do not sign up for a subscription will have only limited access to the Citizen’s website. A limited, online-only registration option will be available as well, but this option will not provide full access to Citizen news and feature stories.
If you’re not a subscriber to the Citizen and you want to be, sign-up online at www.chieflandcitizen.com or call 493-4796 and ask for Melissa or Marcia.
