Inquirer and Mirror Returns to Local Ownership

This year, the Inquirer and Mirror in Nantucket, Mass. will celebrate its 200th anniversary. And as one of the oldest newspapers in the country, it is now back in the hands of local owners after Gannett, its previous owner, sold it to 41 North Media LLC last November...

Small newspapers are closing or being bought, and then you’ve got towns without any independent news.”
