The Story Behind the Philadelphia Inquirer Bankruptcy

Philebrity broke the news late last night with the full text of a Newspaper Guild memo to its members, and the Inquirer confirmed it this morning with an A1 story: “Inquirer Owner Files for Bankruptcy.”

For an in-depth look at what brought Brian Tierney’s Philadelphia Media Holdings group to this drastic step after fewer than three years of ownership of the Inquirer and Daily News, read staff writer Steve Volk’s in-depth feature from our February issue, “1978 Called. It Wants Its Newspaper Back.”
