Rocky Mountain News Ceases Publication

Just one day after writing about  how soon  newspapers would become extinct comes word this morning that one of the nation’s oldest and most respected dailies, the Rocky Mountain News, has published it’s final edition.

The E.W. Scripps Co., which owns the News, said Thursday the newspaper lost $16 million last year and the company was unable to find a viable buyer since announcing a sale Dec. 4.
“Today the Rocky Mountain News, long the leading voice in Denver, becomes a victim of changing times in our industry and huge economic challenges,” Scripps CEO Rich Boehne said Thursday.
