ABSTRACT
The article reports that owners of the newspapers "Tribune" and "The Sun Times" want to sell their companies. But, no local business or civic leaders have shown interest to own either paper. Yusef Jackson, co-owner of beer distributorship River North Sales & Service, wants to own the Sun-Times. "The Tribune" is not inspiring potential buyers as it would be difficult for buyers to afford it.
