Illustrated Daily News
Among the slew of newspapers to hit the Los Angeles market in the late 1800’s, the Illustrated Daily News was one of the few to survive the era’s many changes. The ad hoc press of the era was not exactly an easy task. The Los Angeles Police Department and the LAPD were a formidable adversary, but the Los Angeles Daily News’ ad hoc press was up to the task.
The Daily News was based on the London tabloid, the Daily Mirror. Although its logo was a tad too subtle to be seen by the untrained eye, the icon was a reincarnation of the original.
Alden Global Capital
Earlier this year, Alden Global Capital made a surprise takeover of Tribune Publishing. That meant the company would own The New York Daily News, The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, and other newspapers. It was a deal valued at $630 million.
Alden also bought a minority share of Lee Enterprises, Inc., a company that owns newspapers in 26 states. Alden owns about 6 percent of the company’s stock. However, the company’s board developed a “Rights Plan” to delay the takeover. Among other things, it would force Alden to replace one other board member, Mary Junck, and to remove one other nominee.
