What if the Sun-Sentinel's New Owners Decide to Sell the Paper?
For a long time, South Florida has been a three-newspaper land. The Palm Beach Post, the Sun-Sentinel, and the Miami Herald all overlapped to some degree, giving this stranger-than-fiction region a little competition in the newspaper business. That sets us apart from the rest of the country, but it's all started to change recently, as the papers run one another's material and cut reporting jobs and circulation.
I'm sure that if you were interested in Tribune's 23 TV stations, which are valued at $2.9 billion, they'd meet you for coffee.But Tribune's eight remaining dailies - the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Hartford Courant, Orlando Sentinel, Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, Allentown Morning Call, and Hampton Roads Daily Press - are another story. Given the collapse of newspaper properties, the hedgies and bankers might be willing to bring Irish coffee, pastries, and the pink slips for the papers to your home in hopes of doing a quickie deal.
