Morris Newspapers buys Monroe Publishing
Morris Newspaper Corporation has purchased the assets of Monroe Publishing from Bliss Communications. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition included The Monroe Times, serving Wisconsin's Green and Lafayette counties, as well as two free weekly papers: the Monroe (Wis.) Shopping News and the Freeport (Ill.) Shopping News.
"We're pleased to welcome the Monroe and Freeport publications and employees to our locally managed, growing Wisconsin group," said Charles H. Morris, president of Morris Multimedia. "We continue to have interest in markets like Monroe that maintain a strong local identity and in which a local newspaper and digital platform remain vital community contributors."
