At GateHouse Media, our mission is to deliver high quality and trusted journalism, products and services that enrich the communities we serve – our readers, commercial partners, employees and investors.
GateHouse Media is one of the largest publishers of locally-based media in the United States. We publish more than 140 daily newspapers, 340 community publications and 570 local market websites that reach more than 23 million people each week. You'll find our publications in 37 states.
UpCurve, a GateHouse subsidiary which provides marketing, digital solutions and cloud services to small and mid-sized businesses, continues to grow. UpCurve's businesses leverage GateHouse Media's core strengths. Currently, those businesses include ThriveHive, GateHouse Auto and BestRide.com, W-Systems and ViWO.
We continue to acquire daily newspapers — most recently the Akron, Ohio, Beacon Journal; the Austin, Texas, American-Statesman; the Gardner, Massachusetts, News; the Palm Beach, Florida, Post and Daily News; and the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Oklahoman.
Our Center for News & Design, based in Austin, Texas, employs more than 300 individuals and serves 90 daily newspapers, including 11 daily commercial partners, and more than 200 weekly newspapers.
While we have experienced significant growth over the last several years, we continually strive to make ourselves not just a bigger company, but a stronger one.
