So it’s official, I guess.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer will roll off the presses for the last time Tuesday, ending a 146-year run.

The Hearst Corp. announced Monday that it would stop publishing the newspaper, Seattle’s oldest business, and cease delivery to more than 117,600 weekday readers.

The company, however, said it will maintain seattlepi.com, making it the nation’s largest daily newspaper to shift to an entirely digital news product.

“Tonight we’ll be putting the paper to bed for the last time,” Editor and Publisher Roger Oglesby told a silent newsroom Monday morning. “But the bloodline will live on.”

It’s not surprising however the news will continue online. Many of us will be watching very carefuly as the Seattle P-I will be the largest online newspaper.

The migration begins for many.

    You’d think a person would get used to hearing this news… but I’m not. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer? Good paper! This is just bizarre.
