Newspapers’ death spiral continues: Seattle P-I stops the presses

44969988_af46b72fe6Looks like I have more friends in low places. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer‘s last print edition will hit the newsstands tomorrow. Then, they go online-only with a reduced staff. This is the second major U.S. city to lose a daily — Denver’s Rocky Mountain News went down a few weeks ago. The San Francisco Chronicle may be next.

My former colleague Anthony Salveggi called this scenerio back in January.

So, Seattle reporters, let me know if you need help making your signs.

UPDATE: Newspaper Death Watch is reporting that the Tuscon Citizen‘s last day may be Friday.
