Monocle to launch daily Monocolumn online

Monocle will next week debut its new ‘Monocolumn’, a daily online report, featuring news, comment and opinion on global affairs, business, culture, and design.

Sponsored by Blackberry, this new venture will be available every day from 12.00pm (CET) on September 17 via monocle.com.  The online column builds on Monocle’s existing publications, which include an audio broadcast, The Monocle Weekly, and Monocle magazine currently published 10 times a year.

The Monocolumn will be free to access – in contrast to the rest of the site’s content, which can only be viewed in full as part of a £75-a-year subscription.

“We’re excited to be offering the full spectrum of news delivery, in monthly, weekly and now daily installments,” Monocle founder and editor-in-chief, Tyler Brûlé said in a press release.

The first edition of the Monocolumn will feature an introduction by Brûlé.
