Gannett to Buy New Jersey Papers

The Record is getting a new owner.

Gannett is in talks to acquire several New Jersey newspapers.

According to the New York Post, the big prize for Gannett—which already owns six papers in Jersey—is The Record, the state’s second-largest paper. The largest is Newark’s Star-Ledger.

The Record is based in Woodland Park. It has been owned by the Borg family since 1930.
