I’m told that Halifax Media is buying the New York Times Regional Media Group.
The sale wasn’t supposed to be announced today, but the web page you see on the right was posted this morning by accident; it shows all of the Regional Media Group papers being owned by Halifax.
The web page was quickly taken down soon, but not before someone grabbed a screenshot for me.
New York Times corporate communications senior vice president Bob Christie won’t comment now, but promises to call back. || UPDATE: He has pointed me to the Times’ press release.
