Has Jeremy Halbreich Saved Chicago Sun-Times?

By |

Newspaper observer Allen Mutter has called the Sun-Times “jinxed.”  It may certainly seem so to the dissident shareholder group that took over the paper earlier this year. Under the leadership of Dallas newspaper exec Halbreich they may have pulled the feisty Chicago tabloid back from the brink. This week Mesirow Financial CEO James Tyree and a group of investors agreed to buy the battered paper, pending union concessions. Even so, nobody’s expecting a big payoff.
