Rocky Mountain News Going Out With Class

March 16th, 2009 · 2 Comments

It sucks when people lose their jobs, regardless what they do. A good friend spammed all his buds in an email and I was fortunate to get the link. Thanks D! A remarkable video on the last days/day for the Rocky Mountain News, by Matthew Roberts.

After 149 years and 311 days, the Rocky Mountain News published its final edition on February 27, 2009.

I know Denver will find its way without the paper and the citizens will come together to figure out how to keep everyone informed in their community. As far as the talent that wrote the news, we will have new bloggers, copywriters, screenwriters and a visionary documentary filmmaker. Good luck to the people that brought Denver, CO the news for so many years. Everything will be alright.

    Very sad. Newspapers got complacent and over-confident.

    Yeah, I think we got an earful at ConvergeSouth about the lack of change from the top of the chain.
