No surprise here; print newspapers have been in free-fall for several years, as the immediacy of the Internet and established OTA (Over The Air) outlets have made it harder for the "Gutenberg" process to attract advertisers; advertisers being "where the money is." Subscriptions only pay for lunch.

As a former member of the "Fourth Estate," I haven't subscribed to or purchased a print newspaper in years, and am none the worse for it.

Now if only the Post-Gazette would do the same thing!
