The Seattle Post-Intelligencer has announced that tomorrow will be the last day of publication for the print edition.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer will roll off the presses for the last time Tuesday, ending a 146-year run.
The Hearst Corp. announced Monday that it would stop publishing the newspaper, Seattle’s oldest business, and cease delivery to more than 117,600 weekday readers.
The company, however, said it will maintain seattlepi.com, making it the nation’s largest daily newspaper to shift to an entirely digital news product.
And just like that, it’s gone. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of on-line publication will continue. It’s not like having fewer reporters in Olympia has been a good thing.
Last night I went to check “tomorrow’s” headlines in the Seattle P-I, and my usual bookmark produced and error page that resolved to the URL: “disaster.seattlepi.nwsource.com”. I guess that was an omen.
