5/24/12 * The Hook [full story]
Ted Weschler has just become an even bigger media mogul in Charlottesville. That's because his boss, Warren Buffett, just bought most of debt-laden Media General's newspapers, and Weschler, co-owner of the Hook and C-Ville Weekly, finds himself orchestrating the purchase of the Daily Progress.
Oh, and Weschler is a contributor to Charlottesville Tomorrow, a nonprofit news agency that provides free content to the Progress.
With all those fingers in print media pies, the first thing Weschler tells a reporter in an exclusive interview is, "Berkshire has over 70 individual operating units. Warren takes pride in letting them run autonomously."
