The longtime owners of the Delta County Independent (Colorado), Randy and Pat Sunderland, Ron Sunderland and Roxanne Sunderland McCormick, have sold the paper to Wick Communications, a third-generation family-owned company, of Sierra Vista, Arizona. The sale was finalized April 30, the paper reported.

The DCI is Wick’s second Colorado property, joining the Montrose Daily Press. Wick Communications owns more than two dozen newspapers and specialty publications in 11 states.

Montrose Daily Press publisher Dennis Anderson will also serve as the publisher of the Delta County Independent. The merger firm of Dirks, Van Essen, Murray & April helped in the transaction.
