Deseret News Publishing Company, Inc. Key Developments

Jon Huntsman Eyeing Salt Lake Tribune

Industrialist and philanthropist Jon Huntsman Sr. has expressed an interest in acquiring Salt Lake Tribune Publishing Company, LLC. According to the news report, Jon Huntsman said that the U.S. Department of Justice has put a temporary clamp on any negotiations with Mormon church’s Deseret News Publishing Company, Inc. He added that while he's a ‘strong member’ of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he thinks it would not be in the best interests of Utah residents if the state's news was dominated by a church- or politically-owned newspaper.
