Civitas Media, a multi-platform information provider to local communities, announced today that it is closing eight suburban weekly newspapers in the Dayton, Ohio and Raleigh, NC areas.


The closings are effective August 9.


“Our core business is focused on developing community news and information portals, in areas that are predominately rural and would not be served well otherwise,” said Michael Bush, Civitas CEO. “The suburban newspaper isn’t a fit in this business model. We have offered employment in the Civitas Media organization to the 12 employees who are being affected by this decision.”


The affected publications are:


Ohio (suburban Dayton area):


Springboro Sun


Kettering/Oakwood Times


Centerville/Washington Township Times


North Carolina (suburban Raleigh area):


Fuquay-Varina Independent


Garner News


Holly Springs Sun


Cleveland Post


Apex Herald


Centrally located in Davidson, North Carolina, Civitas Media encompasses more than 100 publications, many of which have served their communities for over a century. Civitas, Latin for “community” or citizen” is a union of four media entities formerly known as Heartland Publications, Freedom Central, Impressions Media and Ohio Community Media. Civitas employs more than 1,400 associates across 11 states including North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee. Civitas publishes 35 daily, 28 weekend editions and 53 weekly publications for a combined circulation of over 1.6 million.
