On April 1, Carolina Weekly Newspaper Group will launch its seventh newspaper with the debut of the Denver Weekly.
“The Denver Weekly is the logical next step for our newspaper group to take in offering complete coverage to residents on all sides of Lake Norman and its individual communities,” Alain Lillie, owner of Carolina Weekly Newspaper Group, said. “We will now offer the residents of Denver, Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson, Mooresville and the Mountain Island area newspapers that focus individually on their communities as well as the strength of four newspapers working together, a product unmatched in the Lake Norman market.”
The group’s three southern weeklies – South Charlotte, Matthews-Mint Hill and Union County – provide the same sort of local coverage that connects communities, Lillie said.
Together, the seven newspapers will have an audited circulation of 114,000. Find more information at the group’s website, www.carolinaweeklynewspapers.com.
Courtney Price, currently assistant editor of the Herald Weekly, will lead news coverage as editor of Denver Weekly, and Chris Hunt, the longtime sports writer for the Herald, will serve as sports editor. The mother-daughter team of Phyllis and April Rozzelle will serve Denver-area businesses with their advertising needs.
