Pulitzer Newspapers purchased two weeklies in California, the Santa Ynez Valley News and the Santa Ynez Extra Edition from Ynez Corp., which is owned by Peg Johnson. The Valley News is a paid circ paper; Extra Edition is free. The two papers will operate under Pulitzer Central Coast Newspapers.
“The Santa Ynez Valley News and Santa Ynez Extra Edition are a great complement to our other PCCN publications in Santa Barbara County and will significantly expand the audience reach we can offer our advertisers,” said Cynthia Schur, president and publisher of PCCN, in a statement. “We are delighted that Peg Johnson has entrusted us with publications which she has worked so diligently to develop. We are confident that the resources and talent available at PCCN will enable these publications to better serve Santa Ynez Valley readers.”
