MediaNews Group, parent corporation of the Connecticut Post, will take over ownership of The News-Times and The New Milford Spectrum on Saturday.What does this mean for the staff at the News-Times?
The Colorado-based company owns eight newspapers or magazines in Connecticut, including the Connecticut Post in Bridgeport and Brooks Community Newspapers in lower Fairfield County. Singleton would not disclose the sale price of The News-Times.
Alabama-based Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. bought The News-Times in December after Dow Jones & Company announced Aug. 28 it was looking at selling or swapping up to six newspapers from its Ottaway division.
Will the online edition of the paper get a make-over?
Will this mean more coverage of local news?
Will this mean more hard-news on local government issues?
Only time will tell.
