Is Douglas Manchester After the OC Register?*

Don Bauder at the San Diego Reader thinks it’s a definite possibility. We’ve heard the rumors too, but haven’t gotten anything solid one way or the other.

Since taking over the San Diego Union-Tribune at the end of last year (and re-naming it U-T San Diego) Manchester has been rumored to be eying the North County Times as well. But UT editor Jeff Light is an OC Register alumn, and has brought plenty of folks with him from the OC to San Diego. The Register has been rumored to be on the block since its parent company Freedom Communications went bankrupt in 2009. Freedom recently settled a major lawsuit with several of its unsecured Register creditors stemming from that bankruptcy, which certainly must make the paper a whole lot more appealing to potential buyers.

More to come on this story, we’re sure.

*Voice of San Diego confirms that Manchester is definitely interested in the Register. “There’s no deal right now,” Manchester told VoSD. “Check with me in 30 days and there might be something.”

Orange County Register News: Jeff Light Promoted

oc_registssser.jpgRegister employees received this e-mail regarding the promotion of Reg top ed Jeff Light. What his new job is, we don’t quite get. In fact, we’re not entirely sure what any of this memo means, but we’re assuming they do:

Jeff Light has been named vice president of Interactive at Orange County Register Communications, Inc., to provide leadership and strategic direction to its interactive content and product development. An announcement regarding this appointment is posted on Rnet.

Light will be partnering with Mike Hodges, the recently appointed vice president of Sales at Freedom Interactive, to align resources and drive interactive growth across Orange County Register Communications and Freedom Communications, Inc.’s network of media properties.”

UPDATE: We’ve heard from our folks on the inside, and, nope, they don’t know what it means either. Oh well. We suppose congratulations are in order. So, congratulations!
