Politics website PubliCola to return

The feisty politics website PubliCola, which ceased operation a month ago, is back in business after being purchased by SagaCity Media, owner of Seattle Metropolitan magazine.

Here’s what Publicola founder Josh Feit had to say in a news release late last week:

“When I launched PubliCola in January of 2009, my ‘office’ was a snack bar table in the state capitol building. Now, just a few short years later, we’re being bought by SagaCity, a well-respected and established media powerhouse. What a short, strange trip it’s been.”

The blog, which is expected to resume later this month, will be called PubliCola@SeattleMet, led by Feit and PubliCola editor and co-owner Erica C. Barnett.

When PubliCola closed shop, it was folded into Crosscut.com, where Barnett landed. But Crosscut is now having its own struggles financially, recently saying it would go on summer hours and reduce staff and budgets during a period of regrouping and repurposing.
