Wendy McCaw, newsmaker

Posted by Kristi Heim at 10:33 AM

I have to wonder what Craig McCaw must think when he hears about the escapades of his ex-wife, Wendy McCaw, whom he fought in court in 1997 over a fortune estimated at $1.3 billion in the largest divorce case ever in Washington state.

In case you missed it, the New York Times has a fascinating story about a staff revolt at the Santa Barbara News-Press, which Wendy McCaw owns. She bought the paper for $100 million in 2000 with proceeds from the McCaw cellular empire, once the nation's largest cellphone company. Two years later, an arbitrator ordered McCaw to pay her ex-boyfriend about $15 million.

No wonder Santa Barbara is a good setting for soap operas.
