"Shocked and speechless" was how the president of the Buffalo Newspaper Guild described the sale of The Buffalo News to Lee Enterprises. It could be a major change for the region, in an industry where cuts and consolidation are already common. For more information about the new owner and what the sale could mean for Western New York, WBFO's Marian Hetherly talked with Jim Heaney, a reporter at the News from 1986-2011 and now editor of Investigative Post, a nonprofit investigative reporting center based in Buffalo.
