Brunswick Times Record sold to Biddeford Journal Tribune

The Times Record of Brunswick has been sold to the Journal Tribune of Biddeford. The Times Record's Web site has the story. We hope this doesn't mean the Times Record's Web site will regress to 1995, like the Journal Trib's design. The Journal Trib also owns Mainely Media, which publishes a few community weeklies in southern Maine.

This marks another development in the ongoing newspaper wars in southern Maine, with Current Publishing the only combatant without a daily newspaper. The other combatants are: the Press Herald, which has largely surrendered its efforts to run non-daily newspapers; the Sun Journal, which owns the Forecaster papers and several others in western Maine.

Disclosures: The Portland Phoenix is printed by the Times Record. I used to work for Current Publishing, in a position that competed with one of the Forecasters (later owned by the Sun Journal) as well as the Mainely Newspapers publications, which are now (but were not yet then) owned by Mainely Media. Confused yet? Me too.
