The Anchorage Daily News is buying three weekly newspapers in Alaska, the paper reported.

The Daily News is purchasing the Arctic Sounder, The Bristol Bay Times/Dutch Harbor Fisherman and the Homer Tribune from Alaska Media. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In 2017, the Binkley Company purchased the Daily News after the company filed for bankruptcy protection under then-owner Alice Rogoff. Married couple Jason Evans and Kiana Peacock owned Alaska Media.

“Our family is thrilled to add the Arctic Sounder, the Bristol BayTimes/Dutch Harbor Fisherman and the Homer Tribune to the ADN’s lineup of publications,” ADN President and CEO Ryan Binkley said in a statement.

Evans and Hugh Short, chairman and CEO of Anchorage-based Pt Capital, were partners in the purchase of the Daily News, and will stay on the company’s board, Binkley said.
