Two neighborhood newspapers in the Twin Cities have sold.
Calvin deRuyter and Tim Nelson of deRuyter-Nelson Publications have sold the Midway Como Monitor and the Longfellow Nokomis Messenger to Minneapolis resident Tesha M. Christensen, the Monitor reported.
Christensen has been writing for the papers for the better part of a decade.
The ownership change will happen May 1.
“We want to be reader-centric and make our content — both ads and articles — engaging and applicable,” Christensen told the Monitor. “ Print is evolving, and we’re looking ahead in innovative and creative ways. More people are reading than ever before in the history of humankind, and we want to ensure that local residents are reading their community newspaper because it is ‘News for You.’”
