Revive the Rocky?
For a $4.99 monthly subscription, you bet!
The pitch for Denver's newest media enterprise begins, "Yes, the Rocky has closed, but the spirit is alive and well." Former Rocky Mountain News staffers have launched InDenverTimes.com, an online news site that promises to "revive a tradition of distinguished reporting and editing with 21st-century electronic delivery," with one little catch: a $4.99 a month subscription fee and at least 50,000 subscription pledges by April 23. The substantial proposed staff includes 30 newsies.
