Ogden Newspapers to Buy Papers in Findlay, Fostoria

FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — Ogden Newspapers will purchase The Courier of Findlay and the Review Times of Fostoria in Ohio from the Findlay Publishing Co.

The Courier reports the two companies announced the purchase Wednesday. Findlay Publishing says it will continue to operate three radio stations in Findlay and four in Columbus, Indiana.

The president and CEO of Findlay Publishing, Karl Heminger, says he believes Wheeling, W. Va.-based Ogden Newspapers is the right choice to steward the two publications going forward.

Ogden Newspapers CEO Robert Nutting commended the Heminger family for its more than 130-years of stewardship of The Courier, and 19-year ownership of the Review Times. He says his family looks forward to continuing their legacy of community-based journalism in Findlay and Fostoria.

The sale is expected to close this month. Terms were not disclosed.

Ogden Newspapers publishes 40 daily newspapers, along with a number of weeklies and a magazine division – stretching from New York to Hawaii, according to its website. In September the company purchased certain assets of the former Vindicator newspaper, based in Youngstown. It now publishes The Vindicator as an edition of the Tribune-Chronicle in Warren.
