In a online news release, the Lancaster News is reporting that the Kershaw News Era has been purchased by Andy O’Byrne who is the publisher for the Aiken Leader and Calhoun Times Leader.
Efforts are being made to get a paper published by Friday so there would be no missed editions according to the Lancaster News Report.
Many have been concerned in the community that the News Era would cease to exist. This will relieve many worried residents. It would appear that the paper will still be produced in the Hart Street office, but printed in Georgia where O’Bryne’s family owns a newspaper printing operations. This would be a change, as the News Era was formally printed at the Lancaster News Print operation in Lancaster. The Lancaster News currently prints the local papers from Pageland, Indian Land, Lancaster. The News Era was one of the few non-Landmark newspapers printed in Lancaster.
