Harris Enterprises Puts Newspapers Up For Sale

KSAL StaffJune 18, 2016

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) – Harris Enterprises has announced plans to sell its six newspapers.

John Montgomery, vice president of Harris Enterprises and publisher of The Hutchinson News, announced Friday that the company’s newspapers are up for sale. The Hutchinson-based company said it has hired a firm to sell the chain.

Bruce Buchanan, president of Harris Enterprises, said in a release that the owners hope to sell all six newspapers as a group, but that it may be necessary to deal with more than one buyer.

Harris family involvement in the newspaper business began in 1907 when Ralph Harris bought The Ottawa Herald.

In addition to the Herald and The Hutchinson News, the family-owned company also owns the Salina Journal, The Garden City Telegram, The Hays Daily News and The Burlington, Iowa, Hawk Eye.
