The end of the print P-I, the end of an era…

Hearst made the announcement, much anticipated for weeks, this morning: The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the oldest continuous publishing newspaper in the Pacific Northwest, will put out its final print edition on Tuesday, March 17. For the immediate future, the P-I will be transformed into an Internet-only newspaper with some original material and links to other news sources.

For more information, read the following articles in the The New York Times, The Washington Post, Wired Magazine and by the AP Wire Service.
