Denver (AP) - The future of a Denver online news venture is uncertain after it fell short of its subscriber goal and its backers and staff parted ways.

Kevin Preblud, one of the original investors behind, said Thursday the site attracted just 3,000 paying subscribers, well short of the 50,000-subscriber goal.

Preblud says the investors haven't decided on their next step but the original concept, using 30 staffers from the defunct Rocky Mountain News, isn't viable with that number of subscribers.

David Milstead, one of the former News staffers who planned to work for, says some of the staffers believe they can make the original concept work and are looking for new backers.

The news folded in February. Thursday would have been its 150th anniversary.
