Fauquier Times‘ parent company, the Virginia News Group, has sold the newspaper’s sister publication, Culpeper Times, according to Gary Greene, Cribb, Greene & Associates, who represented Virginia News Group in the sale.
The new owner will be Dennis Brack, who publishes the Rappahannock News newspaper and The Piedmont Virginian magazine.
Culpeper Times Editor Anita Sherman, a former Fauquier Times staffer as well as former editor of the Rappahannock News, is staying with the paper under the new ownership.
The decision to sell the Culpeper Times came with mixed feelings,” Peter W. Arundel, publisher of Fauquier Times and chief executive officer of the Virginia News Group, said Monday. “We will miss the paper and the community a great deal. Mostly, we will miss working with Anita Sherman, the editor. She’s been such an asset for our company for over 10 years. But that all said, the paper is in better hands with Dennis. He’ll give it the attention it needs to be an even stronger community paper.
Cribb, Greene & Associates is a ninety-one year old newspaper brokerage, appraisal, and consulting firm with offices in Charlottesville, VA, Helena, MT, and Neosho, MO.
