Newsday to Raise Price: New York Newsday...

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Newsday to Raise Price: New York Newsday will hike its newsstand price by 10 cents to 35 cents for its weekday editions, the first price increase for the tabloid in five years. The metropolitan area’s youngest tabloid, which is owned by Los Angeles-based Times Mirror Co., had set its cover price at a quarter in an uphill struggle to win readers. Newsday Publisher Robert M. Johnson said earlier this month that since the New York Daily News strike began Oct. 25, New York Newsday’s daily circulation has jumped to more than 340,000 from 220,000 and its Sunday circulation to about 373,000 from 225,000.
