The Baguio Chronicle joins other outstanding regional newspapers in a digital partnership with the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Chronicle editor Frank Cimatu signed the partnership with PDI national sales manager Roy Raul Mendiola regarding the Inquirer News initiative last February 9 at the PDI Northern Luzon Bureau office.
Under the initiative, subscribers can access the Chronicle digital paper through a shared digital platform using the Inquirer Plus app. The other newbie in the Inquirer Plus package is the Baguio Midland Courier.
Eight other regional newspapers became part of the package last April.
Mendiola said that anyone who wants to subscribe to the digital paper of Inquirer can have a choice of adding Chronicle, Midland or The Bohol Chronicle, The Ilocos Times, Bicol Mail, Palawan News, Panay News, Visayan Daily Star, Mindanao Gold Star Daily, or Edge Davao.
A bundle entitles the subscriber to Inquirer Plus and one local paper of their choice.
Mendiola said that their target would be the Cordillerans working abroad who want to read about their hometown.
“We have to help each other,” Mendiola said.
Chronicle advertising executive Mia Fokno also signed a partnership with the Inquirer Classified Sales Manager regarding the appointment of the Chronicle as the Inquirer agent to solicit ads within the region.
