CU Cityview Seeking a Buyer

january 21, 2003  10:25 am
Champaign, Ill.'s, alternative newsweekly, formerly called The Octopus, ceased publication earlier this month. Saga Communications, which bought the financially strapped paper from Yesse! Cmmunications in 2001, was never able to make it self-sustaining, The News-Gazette reports. Publisher Kristine Foate says she and General Manager Kathy Schuren will continue to work for Saga in its Illini Radio Group. The other five full-time staffers will lose their jobs unless a new buyer takes them on.
