News Corp Denied Rumors About Acquisition Talks

News Corp. denied reports about its discussions with Tribune Company or Los Angeles Times Communications, LLC for a potential acquisition. News Corp. said that the news about the acquisition talks is wholly inaccurate.

News Corp Reportedly Eyes Chicago Tribune, LA Times

News Corp. is looking to acquire Chicago Tribune Company, Inc. and Los Angeles Times Communications, LLC from Tribune Company, the Times reported. The talks for the deal are reportedly in early stages, the Times reported citing sources it did not identify. There are reportedly other parties as well which have expressed interest in taking over the two newspapers, the report said. The possible purchase would have to pass regulatory review and the Federal Communications Commission prohibits owners of television stations to own newspapers in the same market, as it reduces healthy business competition. This could derail the deal or force the companies to carve out a deal that would pass muster.

News Corp. Reportedly To Auction IGN Entertainment

News Corp. plans to auction IGN Entertainment, Inc. after News Corp's initial sale efforts failed to produce a deal, according to people involved on both sides of the negotiations. Allen & Co has been appointed as advisor for News Corp. People added that the deal might fetch around $100 million. Break Media, SAY Media, Inc. and other providers of digital content have expressed some interest in the sales process, people familiar with the matter said. People also said that other potential bidders could include private equity funds.
