DENVER (AP) -- The E.W. Scripps Co. has asked interested buyers to submit bids for the Rocky Mountain News by close of business Friday.

Scripps spokesman Tim King says bids will be evaluated as quickly as possible, but there's no specific timetable for making a decision.

Scripps officials have said they may close Colorado's oldest newspaper if no buyer is found, leaving The Denver Post as the only major newspaper in Denver.
