Rest in Peace, Recorder

The 140-year-old Recorder newspaper was euthanized on Jan. 22, 2009, because its owner, Journal Register Co., could not find a buyer.

The paper covered both boroughs of Conshohocken as well as Whitemarsh and Plymouth townships.

"The Recorder was my first full-time gig in journalism," said Joel Hoffmann, a Chestnut Hill Local staff writer who is widely known for his lack of objectivity and professionalism. "The Local is good to me, but you never forget your first."

A funeral service will not be held in the Recorder's honor.

No one cares about other newspapers buy you guys. Why don't you write about Pam Learnder quitting. You guys are turing into a huge dissapointment.
