Black Press involved in Lower Mainland newspaper transactions

Black Press has acquired the Abbotsford/Mission Times and the Chilliwack Times

Black Press recently announced that it has acquired the Abbotsford/Mission Times and the Chilliwack Times from Glacier Media. In a separate transaction, Black Press has sold the North Shore Outlook, the Westender, Bowen Island Undercurrent and South Delta Leader to Glacier Media. The transactions are set to close before Dec. 31.

“We are pleased to acquire the Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack Times,” said, Black Press CEO Rick O’Connor. “They fit very well with our geographic focus as a company. Unfortunately, we have sold four titles which have been a big part of our Lower Mainland group over the past 12 years. We wish all of our employees at these newspapers the best under Glacier’s leadership.”

The new titles will report to Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island president Randy Blair.


Black Press owns more than 150 titles in print and online, including the Clearwater Times and the Barriere Star/Journal.
