John Georges signs LOI to buy Advocate


It's going to be interesting to see how this factors in to the Advocate's Nola initiative.

quote:

Daily Report has confirmed that New Orleans businessman John Georges has signed a letter of intent with the Manship family to acquire The Advocate. Details of the agreement, which was signed today, are unknown, and earlier Friday sources told Daily Report the letter of intent would only lay out the general terms of the deal and that a document outlining the specifics of the acquisition will not come until later.

Don't be surprised if he aggressively sets out to put the PickYourNose out of business for good. They are already teetering on the brink, he shouldn't have to push very hard.

Probably his first order of business. Shouldn't be difficult.

First he needs to upgrade the Advocate.

For my interest, Nola.com does more with LSU recruiting and basketball than the Advocate. So he's going to have to step it up in those regards.

JG wants to run Louisiana, this is part of the plan. Huey P has his own newspaper, now JG can have his. I do see him putting the nail the coffin for the Times Pic, prolley hire all the time Times pic staff for the Nola Advocate. IMHO, I would like to see him do away with Gannett's shitty excuse for all the states newspapers and have one daily paper for the state.

This is all some long elaborate Brewster's Millions scheme Georges has been playing since 2007.
