The End of The News

When the Rocky Mountain News closed its doors last month, Mike Littwin was one of the few on staff who had another job waiting: as a well-known columnist, he’d been hired by the Rocky’s former rival, The Denver Post. As he tells Dick Gordon, Mike still feels guilty he survived when so many of his former colleagues are without a newspaper job. 

Kim Humphreys, a copy editor, was one of those who had no other job waiting. But if things work out the way she and a lot of other people hope they will, Kim will soon be working on an online startup called InDenverTimes.com. Kim says the newspaper business is clearly changing, but good journalism must be saved.
