NWA newspaper merger near?



Chris Spencer at Ozarks Unbound notes a corporate filing that he suspects means the end is near for competing daily newspapers in Washington and Benton Counties. Signs are growing -- and I heard some whispers last night -- that the Justice Department has signed off on the monopoly newspaper combine in the area to end the war between media properties of a couple of Arkansas tycoons, Warren Stephens and Walter Hussman.

Nov. 1 is the date many are assuming the combine will occur and, with it, some dislocation for untold numbers of employees as duplicate efforts end.
