Morning Journal Owner Buys Ogden Standard Examiner

The two companies involved in the transaction announced the sale in new release Monday announcing that West Virginia-based Ogden Newspapers will buy the Standard-Examiner, its website standard.net and its office and printing press from Ohio-based Sandusky Newspapers Inc.

Ogden Newspapers CEO Robert Nutting says his family is extremely proud to be the new publisher of the Standard-Examiner and to serve the northern Utah region. He says the newspaper will work with the Provo Daily Herald to be a larger Utah-focused news organization.

Sandusky Newspapers CEO David Rau says uniting the newspapers will make both stronger.

Tthe sale is expected to close in late May.

Ogden Newspapers is the owner of 45 daily newspapers around the U.S. It also owns The Pyramid newspaper in Mt. Pleasant, Utah — plus the Morning Journal, Salem News and The Review in Columbiana County.
