KPV buys Herington Times

The Herington Times will re-open this week after former publisher John Roberts struck a deal to sell the weekly paper to Kansas Publishing Ventures.

Tri-County Area Chamber of Commerce in Herington announced the sale Aug. 10, six days after Missouri-based Roberts abruptly closed the paper with less than a day’s notice to staff and public.

The Times is expected to resume publication Thursday.

Kansas Publishing Ventures operates the Hillsboro Free Press, as well as newspapers in Newton and Andale.
