Meanwhile, in Mt. Airy...
There's a discussion going on about the future of the Mt. Airy / Germantown papers at a post in Philly Blog. Granted, Journal Register Company ran almost all its papers into the ground but there are reports today that the Mt. Airy newspaper has a buyer. Don't know if it's a package deal linked to other Montco papers or not (including my old rag, the SpringFord Reporter), but it offers the promise of a resurrected weekly with real news in Mt. Airy.
Philly.com had a report on possible JRC newspaper sales in a Monday post, although it reported the interest was expressed in Connecticut.
Keep an eye out for more.
Update 12.31.09: Seems there's action in Connecticut to save a couple JRC dailies.
