The weekly Clarke Times-Courier in Berryville, Va., has been sold to Winchester Evening Star Inc. by Times Community Newspapers.
Gary Greene of Cribb, Greene & Associates represented the seller in the transaction. Financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.
Times-Courier Publisher Peter W. Arundel said in a statement the decision to sell the Clarke County weekly to the publishing company of The Winchester Star was “based on our family’s desire to transfer ownership to another locally-based newspaper family.”
The Star is owned by the Byrd family.
The Arundel family has owned the 132-year-old weekly since 1981. The sale will close Aug. 29, Greene said.
