E.W. Scripps company management gathered employees of the 150-year-old Denver Rocky Mountain News into the newsroom today to inform them that the paper would publish its final edition Friday.

"Today the Rocky Mountain News, long the leading voice in Denver, becomes a victim of changing times in our industry and huge economic challenges," Scripps CEO Rich Boehne said.

Scripps said the paper lost $16 million last year. Scripps owns the Memphis Commercial Appeal. Read more at RMN website.
