In an emailed memo to staff yesterday, Los Angeles Times Publisher David Hiller gave his “take” on the Tribune Company’s new owner, Sam Zell, calling him a “smart, independent thinker, no-nonsense, straight-talker.”

In the email, first published on the LA Observed blog, Hiller says that the week has been “real positive for Tribune and The Times,” and that the deal would allow the paper to focus on “the things that matter most – doing a great job being relevant and indispensable to the readers, users, and advertisers of Southern California.”
