Friday (the 27th) will mark the last day the Rocky Mountain News will be published. No news on where Tracy Ringolsby or any of the sports columnists will end up. However Rockies fan Favorite Dave Krieger is coming to the Post! yea us.
Here's a copy of the email letter I received:
The Rocky Mountain News just announced its last day of publication will be Friday, February 27.
The Rocky has been a part of the fabric of the community for the last 150 years. We recognize that a reader's relationship to a newspaper is very personal. As a loyal Rocky reader you may feel like you have lost a trusted friend.
That’s why it’s important you know The Post takes its role as Denver’s remaining daily newspaper very seriously. So this Saturday morning, you will begin receiving the new Saturday Post. Your home delivery subscription to the Rocky Mountain News will be automatically transferred to The Denver Post and the days of subscription delivery service and expiration date will remain unchanged.
We hope you will be pleased to find many of your favorite Rocky writers and columnists are also making the change. Mike Littwin, Tina Griego, Penny Parker, Bill Johnson, and David Krieger in sports, and Vincent Carroll in the editorial pages.
In addition, The Post is pleased to add from the Rocky veteran political reporter Lynn Bartels, Pulitzer Prize finalist Kevin Vaughan, computer-assisted reporting whiz Burt Hubbard, and business writer Gargi Chakrabarty, who will cover Colorado’s dynamic energy industry.
The Post will also incorporate all of the Rocky's comics and many of its puzzles.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service department at 303-832-3232 or 1-800-543-5543 outside Metro Denver. Also, feel free to visit our website at DenverPost.com.
For 117 years, The Denver Post has risen to the challenge of serving as the Voice of the Rocky Mountain Empire. We look forward to continuing to meet that standard, and earning your trust and friendship for years to come.
