So, it’s been a week since we learned that Scripps would shut the Rocky Mountain News down. The most recent developments:
- The Denver Business Journal reports that Denver Post publisher MediaNews Group is “experimenting with producing a customized, printable electronic newspaper (that it) hopes to begin testing … this summer in an undisclosed market to be selected.”
- A number of former Rocky scribes are continuing to develop content that is being posted to IWantMyRocky.com.
- Michael Roberts at Westword reports on former Rocky sportswriter Tracy Ringolsby, who has migrated to the Web with his new blog, InsideTheRockies.com. Roberts also has an interview with former Rocky business reporter David Milstead, whose aggressive coverage of the the Scripps vs. MediaNews fight may have cost him a job at the Post.
