The Sand Springs Leader office was closed permanently on Jan. 22, Tulsa World reported

The Leader will continue to publish a weekly paper and will operate out of the Tulsa World office in downtown Tulsa.

"When BH Media bought the Leader several years ago, they immediately upgraded our equipment, providing us with the tools we needed to be successful," Managing Editor Kirk McCracken told Tulsa World. "I see this as the same thing. We will have so much more technology within our reach and we will be able to focus more on proving great coverage for Sand Springs."

In in 2015, BH Media Group acquired the Leader and six other newspapers from Community Publishers Inc. In the buy, BH Media bought the Broken Arrow Ledger, the Sand Springs Leader, the Coweta American, the Wagoner Tribune, the Owasso Reporter, the Skiatook Journal and the Tulsa Business & Legal News. The Broken Arrow Ledger has stopped printing a paper, but offers content online on the Ledger website, and the Coweta American and the Wagoner Tribune merged to form the Wagoner County American-Tribune.
