Seattle Post-Intelligencer to go Web only

Posted in Stop the presses by futureofprint on March 16, 2009

SEATTLE (AP) – Seattle will be a one-newspaper town after Tuesday, when the 146-year-old Seattle Post-Intelligencer prints its last edition.

The P-I will continue to live on the Internet with a much smaller staff.

Parent company Hearst Corp. says it has failed to find a buyer for the newspaper, which it put up for sale in January after nine years of financial losses.

The end of the print edition leaves The Seattle Times as the only major daily in the city.

The announcement comes about two weeks after Denver’s Rocky Mountain News published its final edition.
