"We had another strong quarter in digital subscription growth and we're making steady progress toward our goal of reaching 10 million total subscriptions by 2025. In Q2, we added 197,000 net new digital-only subscriptions, 131,000 of which came from our core news product and the rest from our rapidly expanding Cooking and Crossword products,” said Mark Thompson, CEO of The New York Times.
“Today, The Times has 4.7 million total subscriptions.While profitability declined in the quarter, that is in large part a result of continued investment into growing our subscription business."
