Seattle Post Intelligencer Newspaper Goes Web Only

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer announced is now online only. The Hearst Corporation, owner of the 146 year-old newspaper, was unable to find a buyer after putting it up for sale in January. The Seattle Times is now the only mainstream daily still printed in the city.

Steven Swartz, president of Hearst Newspapers, said the online P-I would not be just an online newspaper and this was an opportunity to “craft a new type of digital business with a robust, community news and information Web site at its core.”
