Cox selling Grand Junction newspaper

DENVER, Colorado – The Cox Newspapers-owned Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction is being sold to a subsidiary of a Kansas-based company.

The Daily Sentinel reported Wednesday that the Grand Junction Media Inc., a subsidiary of Seaton Publishing Co, was buying the paper. It says the terms were not disclosed.

Cox Newspapers says it’s confident that the newspaper “will continue to be vital within Grand Junction” under the agreement.

Daily Sentinel’s executive editor says he “couldn’t be more delighted with the new ownership.”

The newspaper says Seaton is expected to retain all employees and that a son of Grand Junction Media chairman Edward Seaton is expected to join a team already in place.

Cox announced last year it was selling most of its newspapers in Colorado, North Carolina and Texas.
