Gannett owned papers that are included in the deal are the Coshocton Tribune, the Newark Advocate and the Lancaster Eagle-Gazette to name a few. Gatehouse already owns another area paper, the Daily Jeffersonian in Cambridge. The combined company would have 260 daily papers in the U.S. and more than 300 weeklies.
