Many Tico Times readers know they don’t have to wait until Friday to get the latest news – they read The Tico Times Daily News Briefs online, updated every day Monday through Friday. Now readers have even more reason to visit us online – this week, The Tico Times launched a new, expanded version of its online daily news as a paid subscription service.
The new Daily News page offers more news, photos, a weekly columnist and a link to our popular Calendar section, previously available only in the print and pdf editions, with extensive information on what’s going on around the country.
The page sports a fresh, easy-to-navigate design created by graphic designer María Fe Alpízar, the mastermind of the The Tico Times print edition redesign launched Jan. 27 in honor of the paper’s 50th anniversary.
Those who prefer not to subscribe can still read a free shorter version of the Daily News by going to ticotimes.net and clicking on Daily or going directly to ticotimes.net/daily.htm.
This new service is part of a project under way to revamp ticotimes.net by updating its look, offering more news and services and incorporating elements of the redesigned print edition. Readers can look forward to major changes to The Tico Times Web page in the months to come.
“This is just the first step,” said Tico Times General Manager Abby Daniell. “Our readers in Costa Rica and around the world want to have more of The Tico Times at their fingertips, and we’re going to be sure they get it.”
The new Daily News page is delivered straight to readers’ e-mail inboxes for a $5 monthly fee. To subscribe, go to ticotimes.net, click on Subscribe then follow the instructions.
