(Newser) – With the Seattle Post-Intelligencer to print a final edition next week, it’s set to follow the path of Denver’s Rocky Mountain News, which closed two weeks ago, the New York Times reports; the Tucson Citizen will also likely close next week. A rival newspaper will remain in each of those cities, but as papers continue to lose money, a future where a major American city lacks a prominent local paper looks imminent.
