How-Do: Could GMG sell Manchester Evening News to Trinity Mirror? exclusively reported this morning that Guardian Media Group (GMG)  is “believed to be in talks” to sell the Manchester Evening News to Trinity Mirror [Update: and the rest of GMG Regional Media, according to the Telegraph].

How-Do, the north-west based media site, has few details to date but promises more soon. It had not managed to obtain comment from either group. It reported:

It is being suggested that GMG Regional Media is to be sold off in a bid to save jobs and continue with the Scott Trust’s overarching objective of protecting the interests of national paper the Guardian.

A figure of £40m has been mooted for the sale, but, again, at the time of writing this could not be confirmed.

Update: As noted in the comments, it was the Telegraph which ran the story first ten hours ago –  for some reason its story didn’t show in Google News or a Bing web search (although it does appear in Bing News search). Apologies for the error.

    It was me that called it ‘exclusive’ as couldn’t see mention of these talks elsewhere; How-Do’s article was ambiguous as to its source. My error, entirely.
