Goodbye Rocky…

February 27, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Denver is now a one newspaper town. After months of trying to offload The Rocky Mountain News, Scripps has decided to close the newspaper and cease publication. Just two months shy of it’s 150th anniversary, staffers and readers were stunned. Of course the writing has been on the wall for a while now, but it still is hard to believe a paper as forward thinking as the Rocky can be taken down. Journalists everywhere are no doubt thinking one thing: am I next? If you have a moment I would strongly recommended checking out their 52-page special section highligting the paper’s last 150 years.

And if you drink, go take a few shots of scotch for the now unemployed staffers. God knows they are probably doing the same thing…
