The acquisition of two Alpha Media titles are still ‘in progress’ according to a spokesperson of Iconic Newspapers.
Alpha Media which is led by Lord Kilclooney is offloading the Offaly-based Tullamore and Midland Tribunes to Formpress Publishing, which is a subsidiary of Iconic Newspapers.
Alpha Media own titles such as the Coleraine Chronicle, Northern Constitution, the Tyrone Courier and the Armagh Gazette.
Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this morning Iconic’s Group Editorial Director said ‘The acquisition of the two titles is in progress but has not yet gone through.
It’s unlikely there will be a statement issued.’
