Slate to Turn Profitable “Very Soon”


This according to Jacob Weisberg, the editor of Slate, who was speaking on a panel at Jupiter Online Media Conference, where I was also speaking and covering the event. “We are close to getting a modest profit, just on advertising,” said Weisberg, and said that his site, which initially started back in the 90s with charging users, will not turn subscription anytime soon. “For us, it won’t be paid content, but paid delivery”, said Weisberg, alluding to efforts like the Tablet PC version and other digital/portable formats.
