Hearst buys print, digital assets of 21st Century Media

Hearst Corp. purchased the Connecticut print and digital assets of 21st Century Media Newspaper, part of Digital First Media.

The transaction, financial details of which were not disclosed, includes three daily newspapers — the New Haven Register, Middletown Press and Register Citizen — as well as eight weekly newspapers, niche publications, and Connecticut Magazine.

The Connecticut properties, which have a combined weekly circulation of more than 470,000 households and a monthly digital reach of 1.4 million unique visitors, will become part of Hearst Newspapers' Connecticut Media Group, according to a June 5 news release.

Paul Barbetta, group publisher and president of the Hearst Connecticut Media Group, will oversee business and news operations for the acquired properties.
