Judging by falling readership numbers nationwide, there likely will be little outcry if the Rocky Mountain News goes out of business. The Rocky, the state’s oldest newspaper, is up for sale in an extremely poor market. If it doesn’t sell quickly, it’ll likely stop its presses. With the sharp decline in the news industry (sleek magazines like ours have bucked the trend so far), this somber reality comes as no surprise. But it will be a sad day for Colorado if the best newspaper in the state folds.
What’s Next: If this happens, bloggers will have one less source of quality information to pull from.
