Reade Browers, publisher of the Free Press in Rockland, has confirmed to Mainebiz that he’s planning to revive three of the former Village Soup weekly newspapers in the midcoast. Browers told the business publication that he was unmerging the Courier-Gazette in Rockland and the Camden Herald, as well as reinstating the Republican Journal name in Belfast. Browers said the three papers would hit the streets the first week in April. He said he’s rehiring most of the Soup staff, but is still searching for new offices for his expanded operation.
