The Federal Communications Commission has granted the Dayton Daily News’ owner more time to find a new buyer. The extension could keep the newspaper operating seven days per week.
The future of the paper has been in question since last year when a private equity firm bought Cox Media Group’s Ohio newspaper, radio and TV stations.
Soon after the Cox Media Group purchase, Apollo Global Management said it would cut publication of the Dayton Daily News to three days per week.
The announcement sparked an immediate outcry from many Daytonians.
