Ogden Newspapers is buying the Norwalk Reflector and the Sandusky Register, the Register reported.
Ogden will buy the two Ohio newspapers from Sandusky Newspapers, a family company. The sale is expected to close in late July, the Register said.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to inherit the legacy of their impressive work, and we look forward to publishing great community-focused newspapers and running vital media platforms to serve a region as important as Sandusky and Norwalk, home to destinations such as Lake Erie and Cedar Point,” said Ogden Newspapers CEO Robert Nutting.
“We’re fortunate to be able to turn the papers over to another family company, owned by the Nutting family, who have demonstrated a record of editorial independence and local emphasis, and have a long-standing commitment to quality community journalism,” said David Rau, CEO of Sandusky Newspapers.
Ogden Newspapers is based in Wheeling, West Virginia.
