Sun-Times to Sell Chicago Reader to Chicago Crusader

The Chicago Sun-Times will sell its ownership of the Chicago Reader to Chicago Crusader publisher Dorothy Leavell. The deal, which is expected to close in 30 days, was announced Friday at the Rainbow PUSH Convention. "I am so honored to have had an opportunity to stand here to say to you that not only am I the publisher of the Chicago Crusader and the Gary Crusader but now the Chicago Reader,” said Leavell, who has published the Chicago and Gary Crusader papers for 50 years. In a written statement Leavell said the goal of the new ownership is “to preserve and strengthen this brand and to make the paper accessible to all Chicago communities.” (Chicago Reader)
