Bakewell Family To Purchase Third Black Newspaper, LA Watts Times

New America Media, News Report, Brandon I. Brooks

 LOS ANGELES  -- Publishers of two of Los Angeles' most historic black newspapers, Danny Bakewell, Sr., publisher of the Los Angeles Sentinel and Melanie Polk, publisher of the L.A. Watts Times announced that they are in the final stages of an exclusive negotiation for Bakewell Media to purchase the L.A. Watts Times. 

"I am proud and honored that Melanie chose me and my family to continue the great legacy of the Watts Times, its founders and her parents," Bakewell said. "We thank and applaud her for the great work she has done in making this newspaper one of black L.A.'s finest." 

 "The L.A. Watts Times has been a part of my life since I was very young and while it is bittersweet for me to move on, it has been my commitment to see that the L.A. Watts Times lives on," Polk said. "Long before Danny Bakewell purchased the Los Angeles Sentinel, he demonstrated his love and commitment for the Black press. Having witnessed and benefited from his work on our behalf, I am confident he will carry the L.A. Watts Times to new heights for our community and advertisers alike."
