Dear Guild member,

The New York Post reported this morning that Philadelphia Media Network, which owns the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and, is up for auction with a major investor, Alden Global, planning to exit.

Here is a link to the story.

We are working to find out more about this situation and have asked the company to address the matter to its employees. We hope to see some communication from PMN soon.

Meanwhile, on another matter, Guild leaders were previously scheduled to meet with senior management and the editors of the Inquirer, Daily News and on Tuesday afternoon to talk about the “One Newsroom” concept and will update the membership after that discussion.

In solidarity,

Dan Gross, President
Bill Ross, Executive Director,
and the Executive Board of the Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia/Communications Workers of America Local 38010
