Democrat-Gazette parent acquires Pine Bluff paper

PINE BLUFF -- Gannett has sold The Pine Bluff Commercial to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and its parent company, WEHCO Newspapers Inc. of Little Rock.

The Commercial ceased publication Monday under Gannett's ownership and resumed publication today as part of the Democrat-Gazette, said Walter Hussman Jr., publisher of the Democrat-Gazette.

Hussman said on Sunday that he was concerned that Gannett might have to close the 139-year-old newspaper.

By purchasing the paper, Hussman said he can save money on printing costs and invest more in journalism.
