Telluride’s daily newspaper has been sold to Boulder’s Randy Miller, a lifetime newspaperman who’s had his eye on this town’s paper for more than three decades.
Miller, a former editor who owns a weekly newspaper in suburban Tucson, bought the Telluride Daily Planet in a deal that was finalized Thursday.
In the deal, Miller also bought the Planet’s sister papers, the weekly newspapers the Norwood Post and the Silverton Standard & Miner. The Standard is the longest continuously operating business on the Western Slope.
The papers had been owned by Gatehouse Media, a New York conglomerate that publishes nearly 300 papers across the nation.
GateHouse Media owns The Carthage Press, Neosho Daily News, and numerous other publications in Missouri and Kansas.
