North Jersey Media Group

North Jersey Media Group is a newspaper publishing company headquartered in Woodland Park, New Jersey and owned by the Gannett Company, Inc. It publishes The Record, the Herald News of Passaic County, the Daily Record of Morris County, and other community newspapers and publications.

HistoryEdit

North Jersey Media Group was formed in 2000 as an umbrella organization for all of the media interests of the Borg family, which acquired The Record—the second-largest newspaper in the state, in 1930, as well as the Herald News, and a network of 50 community newspapers that cumulatively generated $90 million per-year in revenue.[1][2]

On July 7, 2016, Gannett Company announced its intent to acquire North Jersey Media Group. Once the sale was finalized, Gannett merged the operations of the Daily Record into North Jersey Media Group.

In addition to the three major properties and various local publications that make up North Jersey Media Group, Gannett also owns the Asbury Park Press, the Courier News of Somerville, the Courier-Post of Camden, The Daily Journal of Vineland, and the Home News Tribune in Middlesex County.[3]
