We want local news to be accessible to everyone, so we don’t put our articles behind a paywall, and we don’t charge a subscription price. Subscribing is completely free.
But we do depend on reader support
In order to keep the news free, we need help. We ask readers to pay what they can, if they can. Those contributions help cover the costs of reporting, publishing, and delivering local news every day.

We deliver an incredible value. Every day.
Last year, The Lansing Journal reported, published, and delivered 1,431 local news stories at an average cost of $54.69 per story. That’s an incredible value — and it’s possible only with reader support.
