Providence Journal Publisher Howard G. Sutton told employees Wednesday morning that the paper’s owner, A.H. Belo, is exploring a sale of the publication, Paul Edward Parker reports.
Selling the newspaper “would allow the Company to continue to focus resources and management time and attention on its core Dallas market,” an A.H. Belo press release says. The company also owns The Dallas Morning News and the Denton Record-Chronicle. It recently sold The (Riverside, Calif.) Press-Enterprise to Aaron Kushner.
