YORK, Pa. (AP) - Gannett Co. has announced it is acquiring four newspapers in south-central Pennsylvania, including the York Daily Record/Sunday News, the largest of the group.

The McLean, Virginia-based company said Monday the deal is part of a larger purchase of newspapers from Digital First Media. It includes media properties in Texas and New Mexico.

The other Pennsylvania papers joining Gannett are the Public Opinion in Chambersburg, the Lebanon Daily News and The Evening Sun in Hanover.

Daily Record publisher Sara Glines told members of her staff that The York Dispatch is included in the acquisition. The Daily Record and the Dispatch have had a joint operating agreement since 1990 and operate as the York Newspaper Co. Both are now morning newspapers.

The Daily Record said the two newsrooms will remain independent.
