Hollinger to lose three well-known board members

Don't look for these three famous men to put their Hollinger stint on their resumes.

From AP:

Hollinger International Inc., a newspaper publisher formerly run by fallen media tycoon Conrad Black, announced Monday it will lose three well-known members of its board of directors.

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Illinois Gov. Jim Thompson and former Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard N. Perle are among six board members who won't seek re-election at the annual shareholders meeting in January, according to a company statement.

The announcement comes less than a week after federal prosecutors indicted Black, the company's former chairman and CEO, on charges that he siphoned millions of dollars from Hollinger. The Chicago-based company publishes the Chicago Sun-Times, community newspapers in the Chicago area and a few small publications in Canada. It sold the Jerusalem Post and The Daily Telegraph of London in 2004.
