Spirited Media - Reimagining Local News

Three-year-old Spirited Media, with sites in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Denver, plans to roll out memberships in early 2018 as it seeks to decrease its dependence on digital ad revenue. Spirited is working with News Revenue Hub, which has helped other news startups develop membership plans. Spirited’s CEO Jim Brady said the exact prices and benefits haven’t been decided, but aims to convert 10 percent of Spirited’s 25,000 newsletter subscribers to members paying at least $10 a month, based on the News Revenue Hub model.
