Why Rolling Stone Launched a New Digital Subscription Model


For over 50 years, Rolling Stone has been taking music — and the culture around it — seriously. We continue to publish award-winning journalism that includes exclusive photography, longform storytelling, and deep reporting in our magazine and 24/7 on our website. As we continue to evolve our business so that we can remain dedicated to share these essential stories that define our lives — along with videos, podcasts, and more — we’re hoping you’ll support this valuable mission. 

So we’re now offering a digital subscription. That means, not only will our subscribers get access to our archives of important — and controversial — coverage that spans six decades, but you’ll also get curated content and exclusive first-hand looks behind the scenes. The majority of our daily and weekly newsletters will remain free to receive in your inbox, though reading them on the website will be a subscriber benefit.

“As we continue our commitment to the integrity, honesty, and quality of our journalism — as well as to bold design and original photography — we’re proud to have your support,” says Gus Wenner, President and COO of Rolling Stone. “We believe this tradition of deep reporting will always have a place in the cultural conversation, but we couldn’t sustain it without dedicated readers like you. Thank you!” 

Sign up for a Rolling Stone digital subscription — and support our distinctive coverage of music, politics, culture, entertainment, as well as criticism. Active print subscribers are offered a discount for Unlimited Access to RollingStone.com. And don’t forget to personalize your experience by signing up for Rolling Stone newsletters to get the latest stories on the topics that interest you the most, from music to entertainment to politics.
