Seattle Post-Intelligencer celebrates one year as online-only

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer closed its print version and went online-only a year ago yesterday, The Associated Press reported. Readership is stable, and the journalistic work of Seattlepi.com is a success, but the issue of financial stability is "a work in progress," industry analyst Ken Doctor of Outsell Inc. told the AP.

The Hearst-owned news organisation is on its way to turning a profit, Hearst Seattle Media general manager Pat Balles told MediaBuyerPlanner, but would not give a timeframe for profitability. About four million people visit the Web site each month, about the same as were visiting the site before the print version closed, Seattlepi.com's executive producer Michelle Nicolosi told the AP. The site receives 40 million pageviews monthly, according to Poynter.
