this week’s poll

What is most likely the biggest effect of the sale of the Providence Journal?

Posted 12/8/13

Last week the A.H. Belo Corp. announced that it was putting the 184-year-old Providence Journal up for sale, looking to generate some cash to invest in its flagship Dallas operations and well as perhaps make some acquisitions to diversify the company’s revenue stream.

The last few years have been difficult for all newspapers, but especially so for metro dailies. A new owner, assuming that a sale is negotiated, is likely to bring some changes to the newspaper as well as the neighborhood in which its offices are located (assuming the headquarters building is made part of the sale).

Which do you think is the most likely change that will happen as the result of a sale?
