My paper gets a new owner

This was the scene late this morning inside The San Diego Union-Tribune newsroom (as documented in this screen shot taken from the paper's Web site) when managers announced that the paper is being purchased by Platinum Equity. You can read my article about the new owner here.

The announcement ended anxiety that had been building since last summer when the U.T. was put up for sale. We'll have to wait a few weeks for the deal to close before learning what kind of changes the sale will bring to the newsroom.

Who's that bald guy taking notes in the middle of the pic?
