SF Appeal breaks news that SF Examiner will be sold to a Canadian Newspaper company Black Press Group. According to a statement later released by the company, the sale expected to close on November 30, 2011.

In that same statement, Ryan McKibben, CEO of Clarity Media Group said that "it became clear that owning a single newspaper asset on the West Coast was no longer consistent with our evolving business plan."

The only publication of Clarity's being sold is the SF Examiner.

Founded in the 1800s and later acquired by George Hearst as part of a poker debt, Philip Anschutz's Clarity Media Group bought the paper in 2004.
