The San Diego Union Tribune, the publisher of Spanish-language weekly Enlace and recently launched magazine Vida Latina, has been sold by Platinum Equity to local hotel owner and developer Doug Manchester.

In an interview with Voice of San Diego Manchester said he paid "above" $110 million for the newspaper. "The asking price was a lot higher than that," he said. Platinum Equity had bought the San Diego Union Tribune from the Copley family in 2009 for approximately $50 million.
