Once bankrupt Gatehouse moves to become New England’s newspaper powerhouse
WGBH - 11/21/2014
A huge newspaper deal was announced Thursday. The parent company of GateHouse Media of Fairport, New York, which has been on the march since emerging from bankruptcy last year, is buying out Halifax Media Media Group of Daytona Beach, Florida. Locally, the acquisition greatly expands GateHouse’s footprint in the central part of the state: earlier this year Boston Globe owner John Henry sold the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester to Halifax.
