Seattle Post-Intelligencer put up for sale, could be closed

The news is still sinking in. After 146 years of publishing the news, the state’s oldest daily could be history.

Our AAJA Seattle members are directly affected, including Candace Heckman (AAJA National Treasurer), Athima Chansanchai (our chapter’s National Board Rep), Margaret Santjer, Mai Ling Slaughter and D. Parvaz.

Our hearts go out to them and all the P-I staff. Please send us your ideas for how you think AAJA Seattle should respond.

Here are quick links to coverage from the P-I, Times, Puget Sound Business Journal, and Crosscut, as well as a video shot by the P-I of the announcement in the stunned newsroom.

Fri., Jan. 9: P-I, Times, Biz Journal, Crosscut.
