Seattle P-I Ends Paper Edition, Goes DigitalMarch 20, 2009
SEATTLE—The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, a fixture in the great Northwest for nearly 150 years, published its last hard copy edition on Tuesday. The publication has converted to an online-only edition with a considerably smaller staff. The 146-year-old paper is the second major daily newspaper to fold this year, joining the Rocky Mountain News of Denver. Another, the Gannett-owned Tucson Citizen in Arizona, is scheduled to publish for the last time on Saturday.
