[This item was originally posted to The Media Drop]

According to Vin Crosbie at Digital Deliverance, Knight Ridder is planning to start charging for their online content at their newspaper sites. According to Knight Ridder’s site, they have 31 newspapers / content sites, including the Detroit Free Press, the Kansas City Star, the Miami Herald and the Philadephia Daily News and Inquirer in Philadelphia.

I’m not really surprised if this is true – a lot of people have wondered about the longevity of surviving for “free” online, and with some of the statistics talked about yesterday, I could see why this would happen.
