ADN buys 3 Alaska weekly papers
The parent company of the Chugiak-Eagle River Star has bought three weekly Alaska newspapers.
“These kind of community publications are so vital to life in the areas they cover, and being part of a larger organization will help ensure they have the resources they need to continue the important work they’re doing,” ADN President and CEO Ryan Binkley said in a statement. “Life in these communities is unique, and they deserve a healthy and robust source of local news.”
The Binkley Company purchased the Anchorage Daily News in September 2017 and bought the Chugiak-Eagle River Star and the Alaska Journal of Commerce and the Alaska Equipment Trader from Morris Communications in 2018.
