Tampa Bay Times sells Highlands Today to owners of Sun Coast Media Group

The Tampa Bay Times is selling the Highlands Today newspaper to the owners of Sun Coast Media Group. The Times assumed ownership of Highlands Today in May when it purchased the Tampa Tribune. The Times sells about 9,000 newspapers in Highlands County. Sun Coast Media Group is owned by the Dunn-Rankin family.

"Highlands Today is a much better geographic fit for Sun Coast Media Group than it is for the Times Company," said Paul Tash, chairman and chief executive of the Times. "We have high regard for the Dunn-Rankins' commitment to local journalism and know that Highlands Today is in good hands." The purchase price was not disclosed.
