ST. LOUIS — Nearly a quarter of a century after the demise of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, the newspaper is coming back as a Web-only entity.
Plans for the revised Globe-Democrat were announced Thursday by Dan Rositano, publisher of the online newspaper.
The site, globe-democrat.com, is already online and will begin providing news on Dec. 8. It will be free and readers can now start registering e-mail addresses. Rositano said breaking news, sports and other alerts can be sent to readers via e-mail, smart phone or mobile phone.
The news staff has not been announced, but Rositano said it will include names familiar to former Globe-Democrat readers and all St. Louis residents.
The Globe-Democrat folded on Oct. 29, 1986, after 134 years of publication.
