S.C. papers sold to Lowcountry
B.J. Frazier, owner of Coastal Fun Info, publishers of The Bluffton Sun, Hilton Head Sun and Sun City Sun (South Carolina) community newspapers has sold those properties to Kevin Aylmer, president of Lowcountry Local First.
Aylmer is a Bluffton resident with extensive experience in the newspaper and digital industry.
Frazier was represented in the sale by David Slavin, senior associate of W.B. Grimes and Co.
Frazier, who has owned the papers since 2006, said, “Although I thoroughly enjoy my work in our communities, and with all of my associates and clients, after 50 years in the business it is time for me to slow down a bit. “I am fortunate to have found Kevin, such an experienced local individual, to continue growing the company into the future. I look forward to working with him as we move ahead in the vibrant communities of Bluffton, Hilton Head and beyond,” Frazier said. Frazier will remain with the company as sales director.
