Sun-Times may have 2nd bidder, union boss says

Crain's Chicago Business is reporting that another bidder might be interesting in buying the Sun-Times:

Move over, James Tyree: At least one other investor is considering bidding for Sun-Times Media Group Inc.

Thomas J. Thibeault, executive director for the Chicago Newspaper Guild, the union that represents journalists in the Chicago Sun-Times newsroom, declined to identify the investor beyond saying the person is "in the know in the financial world," is from Chicago and appears to be serious about putting a bidding group together. "They reached out to the union first," he said in an interview Monday.
