The AP reports that The McClatchy Co. has reached a deal to buy Knight Ridder Inc for about $4.5 billion in cash and stock, the companies announced Monday. McClatchy will also assume about $2 billion in Knight Ridder’s debt and plans to sell 12 of Knight Ridder’s 32 newspapers, including The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Philadelphia Daily News and the San Jose Mercury News.
I’m wondering what will happen to the digital assets– ShopLocal, Topix and KRD corporate development–will they remain intact, be moved to Sacramento, or be broken apart?
