Radar‘s New Sugar Daddy ‘Now Firmly In The Media’

yusef_jackson_radar.jpgYusef Jackson — the latest in the line Maer Roshan‘s starry-eyed backers for Radar, tells the Chicago Tribune today that not only does his backing of the twice-failed magazine place him “firmly in the media,” he’s still interested in buying the Sun-Times, the newspaper that he once tried to buy for reportedly $850 million:

“I have been interested in the media business for a long time … so I went after a big one first,” said Jackson, 35, a lawyer who is chief executive of River North Sales & Service, an Anheuser-Busch distributorship. “I learned a lot of lessons. I wish they had elected to sell it.”
