Dan’s Papers Sells For Over $19 M.

We missed this report from Friday's editions of Newsday:

Dan Rattiner, an East End fixture for decades as publisher of Dan's Papers — a free paper whose quirkly blend of personality and local coverage has led some to call it the Bible of the Hamptons — will lose his remaining stake in Dan's Papers Inc. under an ownership changed announced Friday.

But Rattiner, who has served as publisher, editor-in-chief, reporter and sometime satirist for the weekly paper since he launched it as a 20-year-old in 1960, said he's feeling good about the change.

The buyer, Ohio-based Brown Inc., owns "18 daily newspapers and 27 paid weekly papers across rural and suburban markets in 31 of Ohio's 88 counties."
