RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - California-based McClatchy has added The Herald-Sun of Durham to its media holdings.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Wednesday (https://bit.ly/2h39N4X ) that McClatchy bought the newspaper and its online assets from Kentucky-based Paxton Media Group, which acquired them in 2004.

The companies did not disclose the cost or other terms of the deal.

The Herald-Sun’s operation will be overseen by Sara Glines, president and publisher of The News & Observer.

The Raleigh newspaper is among 29 papers across 14 states owned by McClatchy, which also operates a bureau in Washington. Its other papers in the Carolinas include The Charlotte Observer and The State of Columbia, South Carolina.



The Herald-Sun dates to 1889, when it was published as the Durham Daily Sun.
