Farewell ABQ Trib

Today, the last issue of the <a href="http://www.abqtrib.com“>Albuquerque Tribune rolls off the presses. While the free market economist side of me says that afternoon newspapers are now a product in search of a market and there are many other news outlets available, the sentimental side of me wishes that somehow the Tribune would have found a buyer and thus been able to continue.
From a purely greedy perspective, the loss of Albuquerque’s second newspaper is the loss of another media outlet that was willing to help spread the Foundation’s message. As I point out in today’s final issue of the paper, the Rio Grande Foundation is able to produce more work than the newspapers are able to run. Another voice lost is another tool taken from our arsenal.
For a number of reasons, some selfish and others altruistic, we will miss the Tribune.
