ERIE, Pa. — One of Pennsylvania’s oldest family-owned newspapers is no longer family-owned.
The Erie Times-News reports New Media Investment Group Inc. has closed Tuesday on its deal to buy the newspaper.
The Times Publishing Co., which owns the newspaper and goerie.com, announced the sale to New Media and its subsidiary, GateHouse Media Inc., last month. New Media Investment Group is the holding company of GateHouse Media of Fairport, which controls 575 publications in 32 states, including The Daily Record.
The Mead family had completely owned or controlled The Times Publishing Co. for 127 years.
