DENVER (AP) -- Rocky Mountain News staffers are considering creating a Web site to rally readers who want to show their support for the newspaper, which is being sold.

John Ensslin, a reporter and group spokesman, says the site would allow people to show what the newspaper means to their community.

E.W. Scripps Co. announced last week it was putting its flagship newspaper up for sale. It expects it to lose $15 million this year. Scripps says it may close the newspaper if there is no buyer by mid-January.

About 30 staffers met Saturday and Ensslin says the talks will continue.

The Denver Post and the News have a joint operating agreement. The Denver Newspaper Agency handles their business and production operations, while both maintain competing newsrooms.
