Hearst Corp., publisher of the San Antonio Light, said Tuesday that it has agreed to buy the rival Express-News for $185 million from Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. and will close the Light if it can't sell the paper. A shutdown of the Light, which has lost $60 million since 1987, would end a fierce newspaper war, defined for years by blaring headlines, lottery-type games and shenanigans among employees. Hearst agreed to retain all 1,000 of the Express-News' employees.
