Seattle Daily Abandons Print To Go All Web
I’ve been saying for months that we have entered the final chapter of the daily newspaper story, and if there was any doubt as to the validity of that proclamation, those doubts were erased today when the Seattle Post-Intelligencer announced today that it will be abandoning its printed publication and moving entirely online. It is the first major metro daily newspaper to make such a move, and the floodgates are now officially open. Moving entirely to the web is the only viable option for most dailies, and there will be at least a dozen major U.S. metro markets with no printed daily newspaper by the end of the year.
