GateHouse Media tops list of prospective buyers for New England newspaper group

Journal Register Company plans to sell five New England daily newspapers and the top prospect to latch onto those is GateHouse Media, according to an article in today's Boston Globe:

"GateHouse will have an interest. GateHouse has let it be known they would like to buy more papers up there and strengthen their Boston cluster," said Larry Grimes , president of W.B. Grimes & Co., an investment banking firm specializing in media, based in Gaithersburg, Md.

GateHouse Media owns the Joplin Daily, Carthage Press, Neosho Daily News, and Big Nickel in this area.

I never thought I'd see the day where there's a Michael Davison byline on the Joplin Daily website.

Yes, that is amazing considering all the animosity that was expressed just a short time ago. I guess both parties were desperate enough to forget everything that had been said.
