So, Haller and a bunch of other writers have left their hometown papers and now write for "The Athletic". Subscription based model for only sports reporting. I've been tempted, but haven't signed up yet. Will be interesting to see if it can survive.
On a side note, imho, craigslist killed the newspaper industry. Once somebody could place a free ad for their bicycle that had no limit on words and color pictures instead of pay $40 for 3 lines of garbled abbreviations, it was over. The Classifieds subsidized the rest of the newspaper. Even now there are still legal "Public Notices" that are mandated by law keeping a sizable chunk of revenue flowing into the papers. Once those mandates go away, nearly all the papers will close up shop.
