He’s been in control of the San Diego Union-Tribune for less than a month. But Douglas Manchester apparently likes it so much, he’s looking to buy another SoCal paper. Voice of San Diego reports Manchester is sizing up the North County Times, a daily which covers Del Mar to Riverside County.
Lee Enterprises, the Times’ parent company, filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this month, struggling under the weight of nearly $1 billion in debt.
Manchester said he hasn’t made an offer for the paper, but has discussed how it could allow the Union-Tribune to expand.
