Twilight in Oslo
And Mecom it is...

The Darkest Day in Norwegian media history

A final decision to the drawn out saga of who will get to buy Orkla's newspaper arm is expected today: both DN and Aftenposten speculate that Orkla' Media's new owner will indeed be British Mecom and David Montgomery. Employees of Orkla Media have mounted a loud PR-campaign against a 'British solution' and will demonstrate against such a solution in front of Orkla's head office at noon. "The end result is completely up in the air. This may become the darkest day in Norwegian media history, but it may also become something else entirely," Kjetil Haanes, the employee's representative on Orkla's board, is quoted saying to Journalisten (note: newspaper links in Norwegian)
