San Francisco Enters The Fray

In December of 2007, I made some predictions for 2008, one of which centered around a major metro market in the U.S. losing its daily newspaper altogether. While the timing may have been a little early, there is little doubt that it will come true in 2009. The only question that remains is which city will win the race. For the last few months, the frontrunners included Chicago, Minneapolis, and Detroit. Seattle will certainly lose one of its dailies, and appears to be working hard to work itself into contention by losing both. Handicappers should not overlook other dark horses in back of the pack such as Buffalo and St. Louis either. And after last weekend, Philadelphia roared up to the front of the pack, and now San Francisco is making a late charge. It’s already a crowded field with more entrants every week in a race that’s anyone’s to win.
