The privately owned MediaNews Group was founded by William Dean Singleton in 1983 and is headquartered in Denver. MediaNews is one of the largest newspaper companies in the United States, operating primarily in California, the Rocky Mountain states and, since 1995, the Northeast. Among the company?s holdings are California?s San Jose Mercury News, Minnesota?s St Paul Pioneer Press, Colorado?s Denver Post and Utah?s Salt Lake Tribune. It also owns KTVA, a CBS-affiliated television station in Anchorage, Alaska, and several radio stations in Texas. On January 22, 2010, the holding company for MediaNews, Affiliated Media Inc., filed a Chapter 11 reorganization plan in a federal bankruptcy court. The company listed debt of $500 million to $1 billion and assets of $100 million to $500 million. On, March 3, 2010, Affiliated Media exited bankruptcy protection after receiving approval of its reorganization plan. Under the plan, Affiliated reduced its debt from $930 million to about $165 million in exchange for relinquishing ownership to dozens of lenders. The lenders, led by Bank of America, will hold 89 percent of Affiliated?s common stock. On January 18, 2011, Singleton stepped down as chief executive of MediaNews Group Inc. and announced that the company has begun a search for a new CEO.
