    Isn't there already a thread on this?

    Yes, but for some reason it's in the news section instead of over here.

    Apologize for the db. But yes, last I checked this was journalism news. Musta missed the memo. ;)

    To be fair, I think a major local daily being sold to strong local ownership counts as news these days.

    Sorry, I reported my own thread to get it moved here since I put it on the wrong board.

    Local ownership is not always the answer. Ask the folks in San Diego, Philadelphia and elsewhere. I hope it works out here.

    Perhaps the Huntsman family will have the good sense to eventually push it into a trust.

    If Digital First sold Las Vegas to Adelson and Salt Lake City to Huntsman how long will it be until Anschultz buys the Colorado properties?

    Gatehouse owned Vegas, not Digital First.

    Does Anschultz still want the Colorado papers? He paid a fair amount for The Oklahoman a while back.

    My bad on Las Vegas. It was Gatehouse that flipped the LVRJ.

    The Digital First Colorado properties cover a population area a little bigger than San Diego County and the Tribune just bought the U-T for 85 million sans real estate so presumably the Colorado properties would cost somewhere north of 100 million. But Forbes says Anschultz is worth 13.5 billion. If Anschultz wants the Post and assorted Colorado properties he will be able to easily afford it.

    The Huntsman family has always been a big positive factor for the local community. This is just another example. Overall, this should be great for the Trib. In all honesty, it couldn't be worse given their previous situation.
