The Los Alamos Monitor may soon be in new hands.The Batten family, which owns Landmark Communications, announced today that it plans to sell the company, which owns the Weather Channel and nearly 100 newspapers across the United States, including the Monitor.Landmark has owned the Monitor since August 1978, said Monitor publisher Ralph Damiani.“Landmark has always been a company of high principals and a strong commitment to local communities,” Damiani said this morning. “I am confident that whatever new direction the ownership change takes, Landmark will ensure that these high ethical standards will continue.”Early reports speculate that the privately held, Norfolk, Va.-based company could be sold in pieces.However, “It’s all speculation at this point,” Damiani said.
