    Pipeline info:

    Cox is selling Austin (and its community papers), Waco, Longview, Marshall, Nacogdoches, and Lufkin in Texas.

    Also, North Carolina community newspapers and Grand Junction, Colo.

    This leaves, I guess, Atlanta, Dayton and Palm Beach?

    Atlanta, Dayton, Palm Beach and three or four community newspapers in Florida are the only newspapers not on the block.

    It'll be interesting who Austin and Waco end up with. Hate to say it, but those other Texas papers have CNHI written all over them.

    Holy shit.

    I got my start at a Cox paper. I know everyone still there and I can't not feel for each and every one of them.

    You think Austin is a little more than CNHI can chew? Hell, the pension fund that owns CHNI has offered to spend $2 billion to buy the Jefferson County Alabama sewer system... don't think they could do both...

    Cox "intends" to sell Nac, Lufkin, Longview, Marshall, and Waco as a package. Also, Austin and its communities as a package.

    That's OK, Texas isn't much of a growth market anyway. ::)
