Tribune Co., which owns the LA Times as well as the Chicago Tribune, has been going through a messy bankruptcy that’s lasted nearly two years.
Neither Eisner or Shell would comment for the LAT’s story, but rumor has it that Eisner has been looking for a challenge since leaving Disney in 2005.
If the deal goes through, which is not a sure thing since the company still hasn’t worked out an acceptable plan with its creditors, look for the LAT to launch a new section: All Hannah Montana, all the time.
