The answer, based upon what Berkshire Hathaway paid for 63 media properties owned by Media General, including the Winston-Salem Journal, is a not that much. To be technical, a mere $142 million for the lot of them or just over $2.25 million a piece. OK, there are some small town papers included in what Berkshire Hathaway just bought, but that still isn’t a whole lot of money. Given that sort of valuation, I doubt the Charlotte Observer is worth more than $25 million or $30 million.
