That sound you hear from the newspaper sector in the United States is owners running for the exits.
Spurred by signs of stabilisation, thanks mainly to growing revenue from digital subscriptions, newspaper publishers, including the likes of Tribune Co and New York Times Co, are putting notable dailies - the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune and The Boston Globe - up for sale.
While they will not get an asking price of 10 years ago, there is a sense that the availability of cheap debt and the chance to turn a business around in the face of declining advertising revenue and circulation will lure buyers.
If they do, it means the newspaper industry will undergo the biggest change in ownership in more than half a century.
