La Opinión splits on Tribune

| 1 Comment

La Opinión and the Tribune Co. formally broke off their relationship today, several months after it began publicly unraveling. The Lozano family, which owned 50% of the Spanish-language paper, has now re-acquired the other half from Tribune. The Chicagoans had received the half-interest as part of the L.A. Times purchase a few years ago. Tribune press release.
