Both "major newspaper groups" and smaller media investors have been active recently in the newspaper assets "buying and selling" arena.
Digital First Media, who spoke in September of 2014 of selling off their properties, acquired Southern California's Freedom Communications in late March, then in April, sold the Salt Lake Tribune and several New England newspapers to investors in their respective local areas.
Just last month, Gannett finalized the purchase of Journal Media Group properties, including 15 dailies in 9 states.
Gatehouse Media recently added some Pennsylvania titles to their list of properties, and private investment groups in Connecticut and Pennsylvania reporting the acquisition of papers local to their regions.
