One paper has a standalone leased office, the other facility values at $163,000 or can be leased for $7200 a year. If this property is purchased there is rental income of $500 a month from two rental units.
One market has one radio station that operates in the area but does not get much ad revenue, and the other market only has a little competition for advertising from minor print, but not broadcast competition in the county.
Growth & Expansion:
The owners feel the local coverage is the key to their success and that growth for both publications can be obtained from a greater push of web readership and advertising, a stronger push on subscriber sales and retail locations, and expand the local advertising base and frequency/size of ads they run. The tourist market would be a logical web site growth, keeping the tourist informed about conditions and new things to do in the areas they like to visit – many are repeat visitors.
Support & Training:
Owner will train as needed and as agreed to in purchase agreement
