Shaw Media acquires Record Newspapers
DIXON, Ill. — Shaw Media, owner of the Newton Daily News, plans to close a deal to acquire Record Newspapers, which includes the Putnam County Record and the Tonica News, at the end of the month, expanding its reach in northwestern Illinois.
Sam Fisher, publisher of Shaw’s Bureau County Republican in Princeton, will oversee the operations.
The deal between the Arnold family, which has operated Record Newspapers since 1878, and Shaw Media is scheduled to close November 30. The BCR has been printing the two papers at its Princeton press facility for more than 10 years, Fisher noted, and a good working relationship developed.
