Ogden Newspapers will buy The Courier of Findlay and the Review Times of Fostoria (both in Ohio) from Findlay Publishing, according to Jeffrey Potts of Cribb, Greene & Cope, who represents the Heminger family and Findlay Publishing.
The sale is expected to close later this month.
Karl Heminger and his brother, Kurt, are the fourth generation of their family to operate the papers. Findlay Publishing will continue to operate three radio stations in Findlay and four in Columbus, Indiana.
Ogden Newspapers already has a presence in the region, as the company has published the Advertiser-Tribune in Tiffin for more than a quarter-century. Earlier this year, the company acquired the Sandusky Register and Norwalk Reflector from the Rau and White families.
