Shareholders approve the sale of Orlando Sentinel’s parent company Tribune Publishing to Alden Global Capital


Alden, who already owned a third of the company and advocated aggressive cost cuts to increase profits, placed a $ 633 million bid on newspapers like the Sentinel, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, and Hartford Opposition from journalists at Tribune Publishing was Courant and the New York Daily News.
