When the New England Patriots went down 28-24 to the Kansas City Chiefs with 2:03 remaining in the NFC Championship Game, The Telegraph's Patriots Pride advertising promotion was looking uncertain. Last year's series of wrap sections and posters proved successful, but the Patriots hadn't been as strong this season and plans had been scaled back.
But when the team came back to win in overtime, the promotion was a go for the paper in Nashua, N.H., a Boston-area bedroom community that covers a strong part of New England's fan base.
So starting this past Sunday, The Telegraph is selling ads around posters of players inserted each day and posted on the website NashuaTelegraph.com for downloading as part of the paper's E-Edition. On Saturday before the big game, the paper will run a four-page wrap around the regular eight-page A section. Should the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII, readers may expect to see a commemorative special section as well.MORE

The number of deals involving daily newspapers continued its upward trajectory in 2018, with 36 separate transactions closed by year end.
It was the largest number of daily newspaper deals since 2000, and the fourth straight year of higher transaction volume.
The two key drivers of this activity were largely unchanged from the prior year: owners of clusters of publications seeking to build larger regional footprints, and the difficulties faced by small operators lacking the scale needed to manage expenses.

What was announced last week as the sale of Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. to the Retirement Systems of Alabama was really an acquisition of the small percentage RSA didn't already own, according to RSA CEO David Bronner.

In his keynote address to 700 industry executives in Las Vegas, Egger called on newspapers across the country to establish conversations with local community and business leaders about the important role that newspapers play.
As an industry, he said we have suffered a lot of self-inflicted wounds. "We wish we had do-overs," he said, "but we don't. What we do have, though, is a compelling story that needs to be told."More
