Medium Wants to Fix ‘Broken’ Media with a $5 Monthly Subscription
But will readers and publishers trust Medium to follow-through?
Last week Medium’s CEO and co-founder Ev Williams invited readers to subscribe to a new and improved Medium for $5 a month.

For now, Medium is launching the subscription option to a limited number of readers “who meet certain criteria,” but the company will be rolling out the program to everyone in the next few weeks.
