Black Press acquires Abbotsford-Mission and Chilliwack Times newspapers
In a separate transaction, Black Press has sold the North Shore Outlook, Westender (Vancouver), Bowen Island Undercurrent, and the South Delta Leader to Glacier Media.
The transactions are set to close before December 31, 2013. The announcements were made Thursday to staff at the four Black Press titles.
"We are pleased to acquire the Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack Times," said, Black Press CEO Rick O'Connor. "They fit very well with our geographic focus as a company. Unfortunately, we have sold four titles which have been a big part of our Lower Mainland group over the past 12 years. We wish all of our employees at these newspapers the best under Glacier's leadership."
