Tahoe Tribune owner sells 4 Nevada publications to Pacific
RENO, Nev. (AP) — The parent company of the Tahoe Daily Tribune says four of its Nevada publications have been sold to a Seattle-based firm that has five other rural Nevada properties.
Swift Communications said Thursday that Pacific Publishing Co. purchased the Nevada Appeal, The Record-Courier, Lahontan Valley News and Northern Nevada Business View.
Swift Chairman and CEO Bill Waters says the sale is best in the long-term for the company, the Nevada publications, their employees and their communities.
The Tribune remains part of Swift, based in Carson City and managed as part of Nevada County Publishing Co. of Grass Valley, California.
Pacific does business in the Silver State as Nevada News Group, which publishes the Winnemucca Humboldt Sun, Battle Mountain Bugle, Lovelock Review-Miner, the Fallon and Fernley Mailbox News and Nevada Rancher magazine.
