MOORE SAYS ‘PAY UP’: Time Inc. chief executive officer Ann Moore is considering Internet subscriptions and, in contrast to past reports, said she intends to sign a new contract at year’s end. In a piece that ran Tuesday in the London Daily Telegraph, Moore said Time Inc. needs to figure out a way to have paid content in the future, adding the business is considering making sites such as time.com and people.com subscription based. “Good information costs money. Someone has to pay for the Baghdad bureau,” said Moore. She also intends on launching Real Simple in the U.K. and other parts of the world. And Moore said she has no interest in leaving Time Inc. when her contract expires at the end of the year. “I’m renewing. I’m staying,” she insisted. — Amy Wicks
