Journalism Online claims 500 affiliates

Journalism Online, the US company that plans to help publishers monetize online content, claims it has signed 176 dailies as affiliate partners, according to Editor & Publisher.
In total, more than 500 newspapers, magazines and other sites have agreed to join Journalism Online representing more than 90 million monthly unique users.
Publishing affiliates will be able to select their own pay models. Journalism Online is offering a variety of ways to do that including technology that allows for micropayments, sampling, the ability to turn off the system at will, and the ability to convert users from micropayments to a subscription model.
"By creating a platform of flexible hybrid models for paid content that maximizes online advertising revenue while creating a new revenue stream from readers, Journalism Online has helped shift the debate over charging for online new from 'if' to 'when and how,' " Steven Brill, co-founder of Journalism Online, said in a statement.
