PRNewser has been covering Brian Tierney for quite some time. The former head of now Interupblic-owned Tierney Communications is putting up a battle to keep Phiadelphia’s major newspapers, the Inquirer and Daily News, out of the hands of creditors who have allowed them to stay alive.

In a profile this week, The New York TimesDavid Carr calls Tierney, “the kind of newcomer that longtime newspapermen love to hate. He’s slick, he cut his teeth in public relations, and he loves to wrap his mouth around a catchy phrase.”

Regardless of whether longtime newspapermen love or hate Tierney, his quest to keep Philadelphia’s newspapers out of the hands of creditors is coming to a climax, as Carr reports.
