WXXI Public Broadcasting signed a letter of intent to acquire CITY Newspaper and its digital platforms on Wednesday according to a statement from the companies.
“We believe the need for this newspaper has never been stronger, and it is our goal to ensure its publication continues for decades to come,” said Mary Anna Towler, co-publisher and co-founder of CITY. “We have been members of WXXI for many years and know that together, it will be greater than the sum of two organizations.”
For WXXI the acquisition is another step in them expanding their channels as they already have a presence on television, radio, digitally and in 2012 assumed operation of the Little Theatre.
CITY is expected to continue to be run as a weekly newspaper and digital publication under WXXI.
