Report: Digital First plans bid for USA Today owner Gannett

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that MNG Enterprises, better known as Digital First Media, intends to push USA Today publisher Gannett Co. to offer itself for sale.

The newspaper, citing “people familiar with the matter,” reported Monday that MNG, which is backed by a hedge fund, holds 7.5 percent of Gannett’s stock and has been rebuffed repeatedly by the company when it has approached it about a sale.

There was no immediate response to emailed inquiries to the two companies before office hours Monday U.S. time.

Digital First owns about 200 newspapers and other publications. It has a reputation for cost-cutting.

Gannett, based in McLean, Virginia, owns dozens of newspapers including the Record in New Jersey and the Arizona Republic in addition to USA Today.

The Wall Street Journal report said Digital First plans to offer to buy Gannett for $12 per share, nearly a quarter above its closing share price Friday of $9.75. Gannett’s shares have rebounded after a rough spell in 2018.

Digital First owns about 200 newspapers and other publications including the Denver Post and Boston Morning Herald. It has a reputation for stringent, painful cost-cutting. Its biggest shareholder is Alden Global Capital LLC, a New York-based hedge fund that mainly invests in distressed companies, the report said.

The Top 50 Political Influencers

There’s never been a more exciting time to cover politics – but with the media in rapid flux, who really sets the agenda?

Vuelio presents the Top 50 Political Influencers as the definitive guide to the media professionals with the most political clout.

Download the full list and find out who’s made the cut

When it comes to politics, the digital media environment continues to develop in novel, sometimes unanticipated, ways – with some serious consequences. New media have radically altered the ways in which Government institutions operate, political leaders communicate, and campaigns are fought.

Although new media has complicated the political media system, it has by no means dismantled it. Legacy media – radio and television news programs, even newspapers – coexist with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Indeed, content produced by the mainstream is fed upon by emerging influencers, increasing its reach and impact even as it is transformed under the weight of myriad digital judgements.

The Top 50 Political Influencers reflects the evolving media, including broadcasters and print journalists in addition to bloggers and other digital influencers. The list includes the most politically informed, those with the best contacts and membership of the right WhatsApp groups for the inside track on breaking news and the latest leaks, and those able to lead conversations across a range of social media platforms.

With the likes of Andrew Marr, Robert Peston and Cathy Newman rubbing shoulders with Owen Jones, Nigel Farage and Kerry-Anne Mendoza – the list is a true representation of the biggest political influencers in the UK media.
