The Columbia Paper sold to local publishing company

Jan 31, 2023 1:03 pm

Parry Teasdale reports in The Columbia Paper that he sold his local newspaper to Capital Region Independent Media, LLC for an undisclosed amount. The company also runs The Ravena News-Herald and The Greenville Pioneer, and plans to continue publishing The Columbia Paper. The sale also ensures Teasdale's daughter Emilia Teasdale stays on as Managing Editor and Deputy Publisher. “My thanks to Parry for establishing a trusted product that Columbia County and surrounding communities rely on. As we move into this new and exciting chapter, I look forward to building on this solid foundation and will continue to deliver content that matters to the communities that we serve,” said Capital Region Independent Media Vice President Warren Dews, Jr., who becomes the new publisher of The Columbia Paper. After The Journal Register shut down The Independent, a twice-weekly paper in Hillsdale where Teasdale worked, he began The Columbia Paper in 2009. "The Columbia Paper has a weekly circulation of 2,100. Google Analytics reported that 22K visitors used the website at www.columbiapaper.com in the last 28 days," the newspaper reported about itself. Now local media only includes The Daily Mail and Register-Star newspapers from Columbia-Greene Media, the three newspapers now being run by Capital Region Independent Media, and the upstart independent Porcupine Soup in Greene County, as well as WGXC and WRIP on the radio.
