Thursday Memo: KING sold … Truck flips … Sunny Saturday

KING 5 gets new owner: Belo, which owns KING 5, KONG TV and Northwest Cable News, has been purchased by Gannett for $1.5 billion.

Truck flipped on I-5: A FedEx truck went on its side north of Arlington around 5 a.m., closing all northbound lanes for an hour or so. The driver, who apparently fell asleep, suffered minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved. That whole thing could have been a lot worse if it had happened later in the morning.

Bellevue restaurant fire: The blaze did nearly a half-million dollars in damage early this morning to the Lil Jon restaurant. The fire was reported by a janitor about 1:40 a.m. today.

Weather: Only a small chance of showers today and tomorrow, but Saturday … mostly sunny and 74 degrees. Not too shabby.
