MCPHERSON, Kan. – Starting next week, McPherson’s two newspapers will become one. Cherry Road Media, the owner of the McPherson Sentinel, is acquiring the McPherson News Ledger from Kansas Publishing Ventures and will combine the two publications under its Sentinel banner.
The reporting staff of both papers will be part of a combined publication which, as of February 8th, will be released weekly on Wednesday. Currently, the Sentinel publishes twice a week.
News-Ledger subscribers will have their subscriptions transferred to the Sentinel, with current Sentinel subscribers to have their expiration dates extended to reflect the change in publication frequency.
Cherry Road currently owns and operates 70 newspapers in 15 states, expanding into Kansas when it purchased most of the publications that were at one time owned by GateHouse Media, which is now Gannett.
