Saints And Hornets Owner Tom Benson Expresses Interest In Buying Times Picayune

Friday, July 27, 2012 - 3:16pm

The owner of both the Saints and Hornets reportedly wants to buy the city's newspaper.

Word is Tom Benson is upset by the recent decision to only print the Times Picayune three days a week.

The paper also announced layoffs are coming.

Officials at the paper simply say it's not for sale.

Louisiana Senator David Vitter says he is trying to force its owners to allow the sale.

Earlier this week the Baton Rouge Advocate announced possible plans to expand that paper into the Big Easy.
