At GateHouse Media, our mission is to deliver high quality and trusted journalism, products and services that enrich the communities we serve — our readers, commercial partners, employees and investors.
GateHouse Media is one of the largest publishers of locally-based media in the United States. As of December 2017, we publish 142 daily newspapers, more than 466 community publications and more than 569 local market websites that reach more than 22 million people each week. You’ll find our publications in 38 states and 565 markets.
Our UpCurve division, which provides marketing, digital solutions and cloud services to small and mid-sized businesses, continues to grow. UpCurve’s businesses leverage GateHouse Media’s core strengths. Currently, those businesses include ThriveHive, GateHouse Auto and BestRide.com, W-Systems and ViWO.
In the fourth quarter, GateHouse acquired both the Augusta, Georgia, based Morris Publishing Group and the E.A. Sherman Publishing Company in Newport, Rhode Island. Previously announced first quarter acquisitions include the Eugene, Oregon, Register-Guard and the Holden, Massachusetts, Landmark Corp.
Our Center for News & Design, based in Austin, Texas, employs more than 270 individuals and now serves 89 daily newspapers, including 13 daily commercial partners, and 184 weekly GateHouse newspapers.
While we have experienced significant growth over the past four years, we continually strive to make ourselves not just a bigger company, but a stronger one.
