Las Vegas • A battle over the future of the family-owned Las Vegas Sun has been resolved after one brother took sole ownership and vowed to continue publishing the newspaper.
Brian Greenspun announced Tuesday that he took control of the 64-year-old newspaper and its parent company, Greenspun Media Group, in an agreement that splits family assets among four siblings.
"This is a happy day for me," Brian Greenspun said. "This community must have, and richly deserves, multiple newspaper organizations covering it. We're here to stay and here to thrive."
The future of the Sun has been murky since last summer, when three Greenspun siblings moved to end a joint operating arrangement with the Las Vegas Review-Journal's parent company, Stephens Media. The joint operating agreement splits revenue between the publications, and the Sun is delivered as a section within the Review-Journal.
