On the North Olympic Peninsula, Sound also owns the Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum weekly newspapers.
Today's announcement marks Sound's second major Puget Sound-area acquisition this year, after the company purchased the Seattle Weekly in January.
Here is Sound's official news release:
Sound Publishing, Inc. announced today that it has signed an agreement with the Washington Post Company to acquire the Everett (WA) Daily Herald, a 46,000 circulation daily and Sunday newspaper and its other print and online products. The transaction is expected to close in early March.
The Herald has been owned by the Washington Post Company for 35 years and is a leading provider of local news and information for the Snohomish County area.
“We are thrilled to have The Daily Herald join our growing family of newspapers,” said Gloria Fletcher, President of Sound Publishing. “The Herald is a very well respected newspaper and it is a great fit with our print and digital products serving the greater Seattle area.”
Sound Publishing is the largest community media organization in Washington, with 39 newspaper and digital titles with a combined circulation of over 730,000.
Sound is a subsidiary of Black Press, Ltd. Black Press publishes more than 170 newspapers and other publications in British Columbia, Alberta and Washington, as well as the Honolulu (Hawaii) Star-Advertiser and the Akron (Ohio) Beacon-Journal daily newspapers.
