Gold Mountain California News Media has acquired several local newspapers from Brehm Communications.
They include the Hi-Desert Star, Desert Trail, Desert Mobile Home News, Big Bear Grizzly and Lake Arrowhead Mountain-News, according to Hi-Desert Star. The Yucca Valley printing facility is also included.
News Media is also purchasing six BCI newspapers published in the Sacramento area: the Auburn Journal, Folsom Telegraph, Roseville Press-Tribune, Placer Herald, The Loomis News and Lincoln News Messenger.
“This transaction is bittersweet as our family has been in the newspaper business for over 102 years; however, we felt it was time to pass these amazing publications and employees to a new home,” said Ryan Schuyler, president and CEO of BCI. “We believe the new owners will carry on the important mission of community journalism for years to come.”
