Chatham News + Record sold to North State Media


Chatham Media Group, the Chatham News + Record's owner, has sold the Siler City, North Carolina, newspaper and its other print and digital news products to North State Media. 

“We are excited to add the Chatham News Record to the North State Journal family,” said Neal Robbins, North State Media’s president and the publisher of the North State Journal. “We believe the long-term viability of North Carolina’s independent press lies in local ownership and strategic business planning. This acquisition furthers our goal to elevate the conversation across North Carolina while ensuring local communities are part of that conversation.”

Bill Horner III, who first retired after a 31-year career with The Sanford Herald in 2016 — a newspaper founded by his grandfather, W.E. Horner Sr. — will leave the News + Record to pursue writing projects and volunteer work in his hometown of Sanford.

Griffin Daughtry, local editor for North State Journal, will head the Chatham News + Record.
