Goodbye Rocky Mountain News

In an ominous sign for midsize newspapers nationwide, the Rocky Mountain News, Colorado’s oldest newspaper and a Denver fixture since 1859, published its last edition today after owner E.W. Scripps Co. failed to find a buyer for the money-hemorrhaging paper. The 52-page commemorative edition accompanying the regular paper features the headline “Goodbye, Colorado,” and highlights some of the RMN's best work. The closing comes just two months short of the RMN's 150th anniversary.
