Seattle Post-Intelligencer Goes On-Line Only

Posted in In the news, Media at 2:09 pm by R

The Seattle Post Intelligencer is going digital.

The 146 year old PI will transition its news offering to an on-line only format effective 3/18/2009. The Seattle PI will publish it’s last paper edition on St. Patrick’s Day.

Printing costs and diminished ad revenues are likely the culprit in this decision. Hearst –the owner of the Seattle PI —  has several other papers up on the block including the Tucson Citizen, which is set to close on Saturday unless a buyer should surface.

Look for more major news outlets to follow suite in taking their product on-line.
