Paolino Confirms Bid for WLNE

Former Providence Mayor Joseph R. Paolino Jr., who has publicly voiced interest in purchasing the financially troubled WLNE television station, told N4N this week that he put in a bid on the station several weeks ago as part of a larger investment group.

Paolino, who declined to name his partners, said his understanding is that about a half-dozen other groups put in bids as well. I've got a call into WLNE to confirm.

The station, which went into receivership in July, has long lagged in the local news ratings.
