Schurz officials visit Aberdeen, South Dakota

Officials from South Bend based Schurz Communications went to visit their acquisition in South Dakota Monday. Schurz bought the Knight Ridder owned Aberdeen News American from McClatchy Newspapers.

The report by Emily Arthur in the Aberdeen News American said that COO Scott Schurz and three other Schurz executives met with newspaper employees and toured the facility.
"We like to buy well-run companies in interesting communities," Schurz said. "If you look at our history, you'll see that we don't purchase a newspaper just to make a lot of changes. ...The large majority of decisions we believe should be made the community level."
More: Reporter Arthur and colleague Angela Mettler were featured in Fort Wayne Observed's original reporting on how the Aberdeen News American reporters reported on the sale of their own employer.
