Scripps says Post violates JOA

The Denver Post violated its agreement with Rocky owner E.W. Scripps when it borrowed $13 million from their jointly owned operating agency to cover The Post's newsroom payroll, Scripps wrote in a letter to Post executives last month.

"We request that this practice cease and that the Post find a way to fund its editorial payroll without resorting to this . . .," Scripps executives Rich Boehne and Mark Contreras wrote.

The letter was dated Dec. 9, five days after Scripps announced it would sell the Rocky and would pursue other options, including closure, if it couldn't find a buyer.
