Current has partnered with Wallit, a paywall provider, to process payment and maintain your access to our news site.
If you are buying a group subscription for your organization, please skip down to the bottom half of this page. You can also download and read this brochure for details on subscription plans and discounts available to stations and advertisers.

Individual Subscriptions: $89/year* or $10/month
Print Only: contact Laura Rogers or call (301) 270-7240, ext. 38.
*Reduced Rate: Current offers one year of Digital Access for $49 for active members of NFCB, INN, AIR, The Alliance for Media, Arts & Culture (NAMAC), students and retirees on a fixed income who are not actively employed. If you would like to receive a print copy of Current, we kindly request that you select the full price rate. Postage is expensive! Members of NFCB, INN, AIR or the Alliance should contact that organization for the unique access code for the discounted subscription.
Current offers a 25% discount to public radio and TV stations and advertisers that purchase digital access for FIVE or more individuals ($66.75 per person). Stations opting for a group subscription can receive the same number (or fewer) paper copies of Current. Just let us know how many you want!
Current offers a Universal Access plan – a deeply discounted subscription – that enables stations to provide Current to all of their employees at the lowest price per person. The cost to stations is based on the number of employees on your payroll. Universal subscriber stations may receive as many copies of Current in print as they want (up to 50).
Board members are not included in the Universal Subscription. Stations may purchase print + digital subscriptions for their board members at the individual rate ($89 each). Or extend digital-only access for their entire board of directors for $500 per year. Current is no longer mailing print copies to individual board members at a reduced rate.
Stations may pay for their group, universal or board subscriptions by credit card or through the mail. Please note that digital access may not be granted until payment is received.
