The Rocky @ 150 series

Even though the Rocky Mountain News closed in 2009, in the middle of Michael Madigan’s historical series about Colorado’s oldest newspaper, you can still discover most of the original “chapters” at the Rocky’s web site. The web site is essentially shut down. But details of the paper’s closing can still be read, and many links to the special journalism it produced¬†still function.¬†Click on the link below, at the Rocky site click News, then Special Reports, then the historic front page next to the item The Rocky @ 150 Years.

Because the series never finished in the newspaper, the only way to read all 150 stories, with historic front pages, is to obtain Heroes, Villains, Dames & Disasters / 150 Years of Front-Page Stories from the Rocky Mountain News.
