Former mayor: Lee Enterprises should sell interest in Madison papers

Isthmus, a weekly newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin, has an interesting article which discusses former Madison mayor Paul Soglin's suggestion that Lee Enterprises sell its interest in Capital Newspapers Inc. (formerly Madison Newspapers Inc.) to The Capital Times, the city's former afternoon paper which ceased publication last April and became an online-only news product. In the article Soglin further suggests that once a sale is complete, the Cap Times become "Madison's morning and Sunday newspaper," replacing the Wisconsin State Journal, which has been the city's morning paper since 1949.

With thanks to Romenesko.
