The Boston Herald has announced that they have been sold to GateHouse Media, pending court approval. The announcement comes after The Herald was forced to file for Chapter 11.
Like many newspapers, The Herald had been suffering from declining revenue due to the shift to online viewership and media. The newspaper is expected to continue their day-to-day operations normally. GateHouse media is one of the largest publishers of local media in the U.S. The Herald has been inexistence since 1846. (source) 3:48 p.m. ET December 8, 2017
