Free to a good home: 1 newspaper in Alaska

By  | 

ANCHORAGE, Alaska Have you ever wanted to own a newspaper?

Well, now is your chance!

AP reports that the publisher of The Skagway News is willing to give the paper away to the right person, if they are willing to move to the small southeast community.

Skagway has less than 1,000 residents but sees over a million tourists arrive on cruise ships every year.

Publisher Larry Persily (PU'R-suh-lee) says he's willing to help out the new owners by giving away the paper because the advertising will afford them a salary, but not on top of a mortgage.
