“More Upheaval” in Greater Washington Media, Reports Washington Business Journal

by | Jan 9, 2018

There’s more upheaval in Greater Washington media, but this time, it doesn’t appear to be bad news. Just more consolidation, reports Washington Business Journal, which added that Rappahannock Media LLC acquired InsideNoVa.com, “one of Northern Virginia’s most read local news websites, from Northern Virginia Media Services, in addition to two weekly community newspapers — InsideNoVa/PrinceWilliam and InsideNoVa/North Stafford — and the rights to publish the Belvoir Eagle and Quantico Sentry. Terms were not disclosed.

“Dennis Brack, president of Washington, Virginia-based Rappahannock Media, said in a statement the arrangement “will better serve readers and advertisers.” Bruce Potter, previously chief operating officer of Northern Virginia Media Services, has joined Rappahannock as both COO and publisher of InsideNoVA, and co-managing partner, with Brack, of Rappahannock Media.

“InsideNoVa.com will continue to operate out of Woodbridge.

“The announcement comes during a period of turbulence in the D.C.-area local media sphere. Just before Christmas, entrepreneur Mark Ein announced he would buy the Washington City Paper, saving that publication from near certain doom, while just last week, D.C.’s Current Newspapers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.”
