More competition in Baltimore

The paid circulation Baltimore Sun and the free Baltimore Examiner will soon get a new rival -- the New York Daily News plans to enter the market with a Baltimore edition, according to the Washington-based website DCRTV. It won't be free but fairly inexpensive at $1.99 per week for home subscribers. The match-up pits Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman against Sun owner Sam Zell and billionaire Phil Anschutz, owner of the struggling Examiner chain.
