ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - The media company Hearst has bought the Pennsylvania magazine publisher that owns Men’s Health and Runner’s World.

The Morning Call reports that a Hearst Magazines representative confirmed the purchase of Rodale Inc. on Tuesday.

The newspaper says Hearst declined to elaborate on the next steps and a Rodale representative didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Hearst announced in October that it would acquire Rodale. The transaction was expected to close in early 2018.
