At GateHouse Media, our mission is to deliver high quality and trusted journalism, products and services that enrich the communities we serve — our readers, commercial partners, employees and investors.
GateHouse Media is one of the largest publishers of locally-based media in the United States. As of April 2018, we publish 144 daily newspapers, 341 community publications and more than 569 local market websites that reach more than 23 million people each week. You’ll find our publications in 38 states and 565 markets.
Our UpCurve division, which provides marketing, digital solutions and cloud services to small and mid-sized businesses, continues to grow. UpCurve’s businesses leverage GateHouse Media’s core strengths. Currently, those businesses include ThriveHive, GateHouse Auto and BestRide.com, W-Systems and ViWO.
This year, we continued to acquire daily newspapers — including the Akron, Ohio, Beacon Journal; the Austin, Texas, American-Statesman; the Gardner, Massachusetts, News; and the Palm Beach, Florida, Post and Daily News. In the first quarter, we closed on the Eugene, Oregon, Register-Guard; the Holden, Massachusetts, Landmark Corp.
Our Center for News & Design, based in Austin, Texas, employs 305 individuals and now serves 91 daily newspapers, including 11 daily commercial partners, and 197 weekly newspapers.
While we have experienced significant growth over the past four years, we continually strive to make ourselves not just a bigger company, but a stronger one.
