Seattle Post-Intelligencer to Go All Online?

According to Reuters [via], it looks like the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the longest-published newspaper in Seattle, is going to stop publishing a print edition and go all-online.

Several reporters said they had received offers from the paper’s owner, the Hearst Corporation, to work for an online-only successor to the print edition. One reporter was quoted as saying that an online-only paper would employ about 20 people. The newspaper now has a staff of about 150.

Hearst said on January 9, that it would close the paper or go all-online if it could not find a buyer in 60 days. No buyer has emerged and an announcement on the paper’s future is expected next week.
