Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Indystry Mergers & Acquisitions -

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.
