Herald's Beatty Buying Broward Times

Mr. Beatty Going To Broward

The inimitable Whitey Fraud alerted us below to this news, but it certainly deserves its own post. Robert Beatty, former V.P. and general counsel for the Miami Herald, is buying the Broward Times from publisher and erstwhile political candidate Keith Clayborne, according to Herald business briefs. This is a fascinating development -- and the deal is expected to close this week.
