Paxton Media has bought The Herald (Jasper, Indiana) from the Rumbach family, the paper reported. Paxton Media assumed ownership on Aug. 1.
Paducah, Kentucky-based Paxton Media Group publishes more than 70 papers across the Midwest and Southwest, including 12 dailies in Indiana.
With the purchase, page dimensions for the paper have gone to a broadsheet format. The paper’s production is now happening in Owensboro, Kentucky, the paper says.
The paper’s print publication schedule has also changed to five days, Tuesday through Saturday. The Herald will no longer publish a print paper on Mondays.
