MediaNews may merge with Freedom Communications

Posted on January 19, 2011


Well, that didn’t take long. Our previous post mentioned there might be some consolidation in the future for MediaNews Group Inc. and it looks like that may come to pass sooner than expected. The San Jose Business Journal is reporting that MediaNews will merge with Freedom Communications Inc., which owns the Orange County Register in California as well as several other community newspapers. The Register may find itself merging with the San Jose Mercury News in the near future.
