Sam Bartley, owner of the Mountaineer for 47 years, praised HD's plan to add a website for the paper, which is 100 years old this year: "HD Media is an experienced and reputable company in the newspaper industry." The company started in Huntington and bought the Gazette-Mail in 2018.
HD President Doug Skaff Jr. said in his company's news release, "The Virginia Mountaineer has a proud heritage that we are honored to continue. This is in keeping with our focus on keeping journalism alive in communities like Grundy as well as the other places we serve."
UPDATE, Oct. 17: HD Media has bought the weekly Webster Echo in Webster Springs, in Webster County, West Virginia, from Charlie and Kelli Cochran.
