"We con­tinue to fo­cus on ac­quir­ing free-dis­tri­bu­tion hy­per­local news prod­ucts in grow­ing des­ti­na­tion mar­kets and the Osce­ola News-Gazette is an ideal ad­di­tion to our port­fo­lio," said AHP CEO Brad Den­ni­son. "We see a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to build en­gag­ing print and dig­i­tal prod­ucts and a large au­di­ence in cen­tral Flor­ida."
