Arkansas newspaper magnates

NY Times reports that Stephens family of Little Rock will be in the partnership led by Dean Singleton that will buy the San Jose Mercury and several other former Knight-Ridder newspapers that were unwanted by McClatchy in its purchase of K-R. Stephens already was a partner with Singleton in some smaller California properties once owned by Donrey, acquired by Stephens after the death of founder Donald Reynolds. Stephens' participation, says the Times,  helps Singleton contend with potential anti-trust concerns for his growing ownership of newspapers in the San Francisco Bay Area.
