A Northeast Nebraska marketing and media company is expanding in Antelope, Holt and Knox counties after acquiring a local printing business and three newspapers this week.
Owned by Carrie and Wade Pitzer, Pitzer Digital LLC finalized the purchase Friday, which includes the newspapers Neligh News & Leader, Creighton News and Clearwater Record - Ewing News. The purchase also includes the printing business, as well as websites for the newspapers and those websites managed for other clients.
“We’re excited about this expansion and look forward to offering even more coverage for readers in Antelope, Knox and Holt counties, as well as providing more printing and marketing opportunities,” said Carrie Pitzer, who serves as owner and publisher.
Pitzer said she expects a smooth transition for printing customers. Pitzer Digital will continue printing programs, envelopes, business cards, calendars and many other items that were printed by the previous owners.
Pitzer Digital also owns the Antelope County News based in Neligh and Knox County News based in Bloomfield.
As far as the newspapers, Pitzer said while there will be some changes in the print and online formats, the most immediate change will be with the Neligh storefront. As of Friday afternoon, all of the Antelope County publications will be run from Pitzer Digital’s office in downtown Neligh.
