The days of sharing an owner with Fox News just came to an end for the Mail Tribune of Medford and the Daily Tidings of Ashland.

The branch of News Corporation that owned those and other newspapers was just sold to Fortress Investment Group, which will manage the papers through a subsidiary called GateHouse Media.

Mail Tribune Editor Bob Hunter joins us to talk about the present and future.
