As many of you know my former employer The East Valley Tribune announced last week they are shutting the doors Dec. 31, 2009. The Tribune in one form or another has been in the East Valley since 1891.
I hear so many people speculating on why the industry is failing. Most people blame the internet. I just smile and nod my head. In a way everyone is right. The changes are a culmination of many events that have finally come to fruition. The loses are just too deep. Personally the news of the Tribune shutting down isn't a surprise but it still saddens me none the less.
