Seattle’s Nonprofit News Site Shutting Down

By: Sally Deneen | SeattlePostGlobe.org

Sally Denee, PostGlobe Co-founder and Curator recaps the two year history of the site.

Goodbye and thank you from Seattle PostGlobe

It’s been an eventful two years – sometimes fun, sometimes a mountain of work, but always worthwhile. And now it’s time for the PostGlobe to say goodbye and thank you. It’s time for us to move on.

We started as a nonprofit news site created by laid-off staffers of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer after the 146-year-old paper printed its last edition on what for others was a festive St. Patrick’s Day in 2009. More than 100 journalists lost their jobs as the paper scaled down its staff and went online-only. Some ended their journalism careers that day, as newspaper jobs nationally continued to evaporate – nearly 15,000 other print journalists lost their jobs that year.
