Locals fell short with $200M+ offer for Tennessean group

Steve Cavendish writes that a local investor group featuring former Tennessean Publisher Craig Moon and ex-Scene Editor Bruce Dobie this summer made an offer to Gannett executives to buy The Tennessean and its regional sister papers. The group bid more than $200 million but didn't snag its target.

One source, who was familiar with the deal but not part of negotiations with Gannett, said The Tennessean's profitability — the paper's profit margins exceeded 20 percent last year — made it an attractive option even in challenging times for the newspaper industry. The source added, however, that the prospective Nashville buyers thought the company's current management had damaged the paper's brand, and that both revenue and circulation could be improved.
