What happens to somebody's vanity newspaper hobby once all that wingnut inheritence cash is gone?
Trib Total Media president and CEO Jennifer Bertetto said in a statement that the sale is "part of a larger strategic growth plan" developed by the board of directors to address a year of changes that include the July 2014 death of Richard M. Scaife.
Ms. Bertetto said Mr. Scaife’s death “prompted the board to undertake a strategic review of the company and identify our best opportunity for growth in an ever-evolving media landscape.
If I recall correctly, the Tribune-Review has never made a dime in profit, and was only afloat thanks to that sweet, sweet Scaife money. It also engaged in an interesting tactic to increase readership...buy up suburban dailies like the North Hills News Record and the Valley News Dispatch, and "convert" those papers into the Trib.
Looks like the Trib is now adjusting to post-wingnut welfare life.
