SeattlePI.com for sale, digital newsroom coming?

As reported yesterday, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is for sale. And there’s an interesting possible scenario developing.

From the PI: “Steve Swartz, president of Hearst Newspaper Division, told the newsroom that Hearst Corp. is starting a 60-day process to find a buyer. If a buyer is not found, Swartz said, Hearst will pursue other options. The options include moving to a digital-only operation with a greatly reduced staff, or completely shutting down operations. In no case will Hearst continue to publish the P-I in printed form, Swartz said.”

If the PI goes completely digital, it would be the first major city paper in the country to do so. Very interesting to see what happens…
