Hail and Farewell Rocky Mountain News. You done good for almost 150 years. Leave proud with your heads held high.

Comment by Bjorn Olafson

As newspapers dwindle and disappear, I’m left wondering: Where will all the great PR professionals come from tomorrow?

Best of luck to all the staffers. You will be sorely missed.
