Pete Carey of the Mercury News says that Knight Ridder is preparing a commemorative video and booklet for each of its 18,000 employees before the company closes on June 27. Each Knight Ridder paper will carry a farewell message from chairman and CEO Tony Ridder (pictured). In addition, staff at KR’s San Jose headquarters will have a “community service day” sprucing up a YWCA child care center. “The company says it wants to go out celebrating its values and history, rather than vanishing in silence as some news groups have done following a merger or breakup,” Carey’s story says.
