Elkton Va.- Ravensworth Press has acquired the Ogden News Papers LLC Elkton Valley Banner for an undisclosed sum. Ogden will cease publication on June 7th. Ravensworth Press will begin publishing in July.
Ravensworth Press President Andrew Franke had this to say: “We are very excited about this opportunity here are Ravensworth. This is going to take us in a new direction and present new challenges we are looking forward to meeting. The Valley Banner is an essential part of the Elkton community. When we realized we could save it from ceasing publication altogether by acquiring the paper we moved very quickly.
Ogden was a joy to work with on this project. It was clear from the first time I contacted them that it had been a hard decision for them to cease publication. They were eager to see someone capable of sustaining the paper take charge of the next stage in the life of the Valley Banner.
That attitude was really key in us making our decision to buy the paper. I have never in 25 years of business had a more gracious and good faith business arrangement with anyone the way I did with Cameron Williams and Ogden. You combine that with the great spirit of the town and the love for community and that is a recipe for success”
The new Valley Banner will begin operations July 11th. To contact us email firstname.lastname@example.org
