Another Newspaper Dies

Denver's Rocky Mountain News, Colorado's oldest paper, closes tomorrow, the paper just announced. (A little less than 5 percent are being hired by the Denver Post).

Rich Boehne, chief executive officer of Rocky-owner Scripps, broke the news to the staff at noon today, ending nearly three months of speculation over the paper's future.

"People are in grief," Editor John Temple said at a news conference later...

"Denver can't support two newspapers any longer," Boehne told staffers, some of whom cried at the news. "It's certainly not good news for you, and it's certainly not good news for Denver."

The Rocky and the Post share a joint operating agreement, like the troubled Times and doomed P-I here.
