Rocky’s farewell video

By Steve Outing

A poignant video goodbye from Rocky Mountain News staff. If you love(d) newspapers, or grew up reading the Rocky as I did, it’ll bring a tear to your eye. The staff did a great job on it. Personally, I’m feeling a combination of sadness and anger. The latter is because this didn’t have to happen. But management and staff culture couldn’t change fast enough. Perhaps some good will come of the largest U.S. newspaper yet going down. Surviving metro newspapers surely can no longer ignore the need for radical change. Well, they can, but they’ll end up with their own farewell edition and video.
