Deal expected to preserve Seattle P-I globe

SEATTLE -- An agreement among Hearst Corp., the city of Seattle and the Museum of History and Industry is expected to preserve the iconic Seattle P-I globe.
The fate of the 18-ton, neon-lit orb has been uncertain since the Hearst-owned Seattle Post-Intelligencer ceased printing and became in 2009. The website reports ( ) that three city council members who are all former reporters -- Jean Godden, Tim Burgess and Sally Clark -- are expected to announce an agreement to preserve the globe on Wednesday.
The globe is expected to remain indefinitely atop the old Seattle P-I building on the waterfront. But if it ever has to move, the city would provide staff time and community outreach to help find a new location. The globe was inspired by a P-I promotional contest in 1947 that sought designs for a new symbol for the paper.
