How might this effect the sports coverage at our local paper, the Greensboro News and Record? We have worked on projects with John Newsom and Jeff Carlton in recent weeks and they are very helpful in their community efforts. We have also worked closely with Robert Bell on a few topics in recent months.

GREENSBORO — The News & Record will continue “business as usual” while its parent company contemplates purchase offers for all or parts of its news and information company, newspaper officials said Thursday.

Landmark Communications, the News & Record’s owner since 1965, said Thursday that it has hired two investment banks to help it explore business options “including the possible sale of Landmark’s businesses.”

In addition to The Weather Channel, weather.com and other weather-related ventures, Landmark also owns major daily newspapers in Norfolk and Roanoke, Va.; two television stations; smaller community newspapers; an Internet marketing company; and a data and telecommunications company.

    We’re anticipating no change in our coverage of sports….except to make it better, which is always our goal.
