What a Time Inc. sale might look like

Pssst...wanna buy the world's biggest magazine publisher? It might be for sale very soon, if investors and analysts are correct in their hunches.

Speculation that Time Warner (TWX) will sell Time Inc. has flared up in the past few days after a major investor said he expects the deal to happen. Gordon Crawford, managing director of the Capital Group, was quoted at a media conference saying the conglomerate will exit the magazine publishing business in order to focus its energies on entertainment and broadcasting.
