Calkins Media Inc. owned five daily and one weekly newspaper in Pennsylvania, one daily newspaper in New Jersey, one weekly newspaper in Florida, two ABC affiliate television stations in Florida and one station in Alabama.[1] Calkins sold The Herald-Standard to Ogden Newspapers in 2017.[2] The Herald-Standard also owns the weekly Greene County Messenger.
