The Linn News and the Linn County Shopper in Central City, Iowa, have been sold by Vern McShane and family to Richard Brockman of Platteville, Wis. No terms were released.
McShane had owned the 118-year-old weekly with an estimated paid circulation of 2,475 since 1986. Brockman, the buyer, is a printer who last year sold the weekly Platteville Journal.
Dallas, Texas-based Rickenbacher Media represented McShane and family in the transaction.
