No More Nando

from the goodbye... dept

Well here’s a sign of the passing of time online. While lots of articles are talking about the 10 year anniversary of Yahoo online, getting much less attention is the news that the McClatchy Company is killing off the Nando name. It’s barely recognizable these days, but it wasn’t that long ago that Nando was a leader in online news. The name came by merging the Raleigh News and Observer, to create Nando. For quite some time, it really was one of the leaders in online news. A few years back, it lose some of its appeal by being one of the first to put up a registration gate to get in — which is about when I stopped using them as a source, and they more or less seemed to disappear online. Apparently, whatever’s left of the sites will live on, but the Nando brand is dead.
