Star News Publishing purchases 13 newspapers in Saskatchewan

Alberta’s Star News Publishing has acquired all of Transcontinental’s Saskatchewan newspaper products, including the Prince Albert Daily Herald, the Moose Jaw Times-Herald, the Southwest Booster, and a number of smaller community weeklies and specialty products. Before the sale, Star News owned five community publications in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

“I’m a community newspaper person,” said Star News publisher Roger Holmes. “Community newspapers are what we know very well. Community newspapers are strong and healthy, and it just seemed like a good opportunity to grow our base.”
