CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The current bidder for the purchase of the Charleston Gazette-Mail may have some competition as the Tuesday deadline for submitting bids draws closer, an attorney representing the newspaper’s owners said Thursday.
At a creditor’s meeting in Charleston, attorney Brian Audette said the sale of the Gazette-Mail has generated increased interest of late and that entities besides Ogden Newspapers are expected to place competitive bids ahead of the noon Tuesday deadline.
Ogden bid $10.911 million to purchase the Gazette-Mail, the highest bid when the paper’s owners filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
