8, 10, 12
Article speculating that Blethen Maine Newspapers, which owns the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram, the Morning Sentinel, and the Kennebec Journal, may be sold in the next two years. Union officials negotiating new contracts have begun to assume the papers will soon be for sale, given the magnitude of the cutbacks sought by management. If the union position were substantially weakened, the financially-troubled papers would be far more appealing to outside buyers. With details on the newspapers' corporate ties to the Seattle Times Company and the McClatchy Company, and with comments by Lou Ureneck, a 20-year Portland Press Herald veteran who now chairs the Boston University journalism department; Mike Sylvester, the union's executive director; and Darla Pickett, Portland Newspaper Guild chapter chair at the Morning Sentinel.
