CEO Janet Robinson said at an investor conference on Wednesday that the publisher will be raising its newsstand and home-delivery prices for its flagship newspaper next month, a New York Times spokeswoman confirmed.

Home-delivery rates for

The New York Times

would increase 3% to 4%, while the newsstand price would rise to $1.25 from $1 beginning July 16. Sunday newsstand prices will increase from $3.50 to $4 on July 15 in the New York metropolitan area only.

Dow Jones


said last week it will raise the cover price of

The Wall Street Journal

from $1 to $1.50 on July 16.

Price hikes for newspapers come amid a nationwide advertising slump for the industry as ad spending gravitates to online news aggregators. Last week, New York Times reported a company-wide 8.5%

drop in advertising revenue for May, with a 9.1% decline at its namesake paper.
