Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Mergers & Acquisitions -

e Jack­son County Times-Jour­nal in Jack­son, Ohio, has been com­bined with the Vin­ton Courier, now called the Vin­ton Jack­son Courier.

Owner Adams Pub­lish­ing Group an­nounced the change in July. Jack­son County news and sports sto­ries will also be pub­lished in the free dis­tri­bu­tion Jack­son-Vin­ton Shop­per each week­end.

APG has made al­ter­ations at other pa­pers in Ohio, as well. e com­pany has ceased pub­lish­ing a Satur­day edi­tion of the Athens Mes­sen­ger.

“APG Me­dia of Ohio op­er­ates sev­eral lo­cal news­pa­pers in South­east Ohio, along with a life­style mag­a­zine and count­less other com­mu­nity and com­mer­cial print­ing projects,” the com­pany said. “ e chang­ing me­dia land­scape, along with ris­ing costs due to newsprint tar­iffs, has forced APG to make de­ci­sions to sus­tain lo­cal news cov­er­age and serve the com­mu­ni­ties of our re­gion.”
