Today’s edition is the last edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The Hearst paper closed after an unsuccessful attempt to find a buyer. The paper will continue online with a bare-bones staff in a format that has been described as a Huffington Post of mainstream media. While a couple of small papers have made the jump to electronic only, the P-I, with a circulation of 117,000, is the largest to do so.
David Horsey, their editorial cartoonist revealed last week that he is paid by Hearst and not the P-I, that he will be able to continue drawing.
UPDATE: Steve Greenberg, who used to work for the P-I, writes a farewell post on his blog.
