Fillmore County Journal owners buy Bluff Country Newspaper Group

The owners of the weekly Fillmore County Journal (Preston, Minnesota) bought the Bluff Country Newspaper Group publications and have discontinued all six titles: The Chatfield News, Spring Valley Tribune, Tri-County Record, Fillmore County News Leader, Spring Grove Herald and Bluff Country Reader.

The Fillmore County Journal will take on the role of official legal newspaper for all cities, schools, townships and county governments covered by those papers, the Fillmore County Journal reported. The Fillmore paper will also boost circulation from 13,500 to nearly 18,000 households in the Minnesota counties of Fillmore, Houston, and Mower. Many of the Bluff Country Newspaper Group employees will be brought on board in the new arrangement, the paper said.

Julie Bergman of Grimes, McGovern & Associates represented Bluff Country Newspaper Group in the transaction.
