Stowe Reporter group acquires two additional Vermont papers: Shelburne News and The Citizen
The Stowe Reporter group, publishers of Burlington Area Newspaper Group in Vermont, have acquired Shelburne News and The Citizen. The two papers cover news in Chittenden County.
Greg Popa, publisher of the Stowe Reporter group, will assume the same position at the two new properties. No other changes are immediately anticipated. “Our first job is to get acquainted with the staff members and get the feel of the organization,” Popa said in the report in the Stowe Reporter.
Boston Neary, managing editor of the two papers, will remain, but the editing team structure at the Stowe, Waterbury and Morrisville newspapers will be changed with the acquisition: Hannah Marshall, formerly assistant editor, has been promoted to managing editor for the papers; and Tom Kearney formerly executive editor of the three newspapers, will become deputy managing editor.
