A Truly Good News Story

From the November 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IN A YEAR WHEN THE NEWS has been filled with growing uncertainty about the economy, concern about international affairs, and intensifying political debate, The Christian Science Monitor has touched more readers with its thoughtful, balanced journalism than at any point in its history.

Having launched its multiplatform strategy less than two years ago, the Monitor's online edition,, has experienced remarkable growth. More than seven million visitors came to the site and viewed over 24 million pages in June. This is a page view increase of nearly 300 percent from the prior year. In addition, new readers are coming to the weekly print edition of the Monitor, which has grown its subscription base by more than 60 percent since the conversion from daily to weekly distribution. And the Daily News Briefing, a three-page summary of the day's news that was launched in April 2009, has attracted more than 3,000 subscribers.

The Monitor is widely recognized as an innovative leader in new media. Folio, the magazine for magazine management, put the Monitor on its June cover in an article that urged other publications to see what the "Christian Science Monitor can teach you." That same month, OMMA, the magazine of online media, marketing, and advertising, ranked us No. 14 out of the "100 most important online publishers."
