'Wall Street Journal' Courts Suitor
JOHN YDSTIE, host:
Business news starts with one last bid for a new buyer for Dow Jones.
(Soundbite of music)
A Dow Jones board committee plans to meet with supermarket billionaire Ron Burkle today. It's a final push to find another buyer for the company that owns the Wall Street Journal. Dow Jones is still negotiating with Rupert Murdoch over his $5 billion offer. Reports say even if Dow Jones isn't sold, there will be major cuts in the newsroom.
