Wick Communications has agreed to sell Tucson Weekly and Inside Tucson Business to 10/13 Communications, a company which operates several newspapers in Arizona and 40 papers in Texas, according to a press release:
â€œThe addition of Tucson Weekly and Inside Tucson Business is great for our company and for increasing our reach and effectiveness for advertisers in the Tucson market,â€ said Randy Miller, president of 10/13 Communications. â€œWith these publications and websites, along with the Explorer that dominates the northwest area and our other recent acquisitions, our Tucson Local Media group is positioned to be the number one media company in Tucson.â€
Family-owned Wick Communications acquired Tucson Weekly in 2000. The paper was founded in February 1984 by Doug Biggers and Mark Goehring.
