Growth keeps coming

Our company is about to get bigger yet again. We announced the acquisition of the McPherson News, Harvey County Independent, The Ledger, and the Hesston Record in this week’s paper.

We haven’t looked for the growth, but rather have been asked to purchase papers and let them be a part of our Kansas Publishing Ventures family.

I think that is a testament to the people who work here primarily. I think we have a great team.

The growth likely means nothing to those reading this in Marion County outside of some more advertising options if you own a business and any of those markets matter to you.

We will continue to provide local content in Marion County and we continue to look for a leader to take the helm as Managing Editor of this newspaper, something we wish we could have found already.

Thank you for trusting us to provide news and advertising to you. We take the responsibility seriously, and even with our growth we won’t turn our backs on the responsibility to be a source of information for Marion County.

– Joey Young, Publisher
