USA TODAY owner Gannett is reportedly in advanced talks to combine with rival newspaper chain GateHouse Media.
Under terms of the proposed deal, GateHouse would merge operations with Gannett, according to reports in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post. The value of a potential deal could not be learned.
Reports had emerged in May that the two companies held discussions about a combination.
In Kentucky, Gannett owns the Louisville Courier-Journal, Kentucky Enquirer, nine Recorder Newspapers in Northern Kentucky, Henderson Gleaner and Union County Advocate.
