Catherine Miller announced today the sale of the NewsTribune Illinois and Indiana Agri-News publications to Shaw Media based in Crystal Lake.
The sale is expected to close Sept. 1. Terms were not disclosed.
The sale of the newspapers marks the end of an over 70 year ownership by the Miller family. Peter Miller Jr. acquired the Peru Herald in 1946 and later that year the La Salle Post Tribune. In 1947 these two papers were merged into the Daily News-Tribune. The name was changed to NewsTribune in 1984. The NewsTribune serves readers in La Salle Bureau Putnam and Marshall counties.
