Good news (I hope)

The Providence Journal news blog reports that the Journal Register Co. is looking to sell the Woonsocket Call, the Pawtucket Times and the Fall River Herald News.

Media Nation spent 15 happy months as a co-op student at the Call in the mid-’70s, learning the ropes from outstanding journalists such as managing editor Bill Crouse, city editors Ed Berman and Jim Anagnostos, reporters Tim Manigan, Frank Visgatis and George Farrar, and a host of others. Presiding over all this was publisher Andy Palmer and his family, who epitomized the best in local ownership.

Is it possible that local ownership is once again in these papers’ future?
