In a small callout on Page 1 of today’s paper, The Cambodia Daily says its cover price is going up on November 1.
Due to rising paper and printing costs, The Cambodia Daily announces that it will increase the cost of its daily newspaper effective Nov 1 to 45 cents a copy, and the home delivery monthly price will be increased accordingly. We thank our readers for their understanding and trust you will continue to read our newspaper, which is dedicated to publishing all the news without fear or favor.
The current price of The Daily is 30 cents, so percentage-wise, that’s a 50% jump. But considering that the price of nearly everything else in the country has more than double in the last few years, 50% doesn’t look nearly so bad. Furthermore, the price hike amounts to less that $1 per week. That’s a pittance to pay for quality journalism.
