Video Shows Rocky’s Last Days

The impact of the closure of a newspaper is shown in a new video capturing the final days of Denver’s Rocky Mountain News.

How this event affects the newspaper’s workers and its readers is displayed in the video - Final Edition - put together by multimedia producer Matthew Roberts and his team.

The 20-minute video features interviews with journalists, the editor and the audience about what the closure will mean to them personally and the wider implications for the community.

It also includes footage from meetings during the newspaper’s final months.

The Rocky Mountain News was the oldest newspaper in the state of Colorado and approaching its 150th anniversary when it ceased publication.
