Will There Be a New Washington Blade On Friday?


That’s the hope of just-laid-off Blade editor Kevin Naff, who, after gathering supporters tonight for a pep rally, plans on publishing a new print paper by Friday. It’ll have a new name (the Blade names belong to Window Media’s bankruptcy trustee at this point), but we’re guessing plenty of the same bylines. In the meantime, they have to find a way to actually print the thing: “It could be a four-page Kinko’s job, it could be an eight-page professionally printed paper, we’re still figuring it out.” Either way, we’re hoping the A1 story explains what, exactly, happened between the Small Business Administration and potential buyers.
