Kewaunee County Star-News to get new owner
The Kewaunee County Star-News will have new owner, beginning with the next edition.
Multi Media Channels is set to close on the sale with Gannett on March 27.
The biggest immediate change readers will notice is that the newspaper now will be delivered by mail. The paper will be sent to addresses in Kewaunee, Luxemburg, Casco and Algoma.
For those reading online, the website will stay the same, www.kewauneecountystarnews.com.
MMC CEO Patrick Wood said the company plans to invest heavily in local news there, covering school and municipal events.
The Star-News is a mashup of the old Kewaunee Star, Kewaunee County News and Kewaunee Snapshots newspapers, and before that the Algoma Record-Herald, Kewaunee Enterprise and Luxemburg News. Gannett purchased the papers, along with other publications, in 2004 from Brown County Publishing, which was run by Patrick Wood's father, Frank Wood.
