ROME, Ga. (AP) -- The parent company of the Rome News-Tribune and several other publications in northwest Georgia has filed a petition for Chapter 11 reorganization.
The Rome News-Tribune reports News Publishing Co. President Burgett H. Mooney III said Tuesday's filing is aimed at guaranteeing the business will continue. Mooney says the publishing firm will be a stronger company as a result.
News Publishing Co. is the parent corporation of the Rome News-Tribune, Calhoun Times, Walker County Messenger, Catoosa County News, Cedartown Standard and Rockmart Journal.
The petition does not impact Cherokee Publishing Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of News Publishing Co., which publishes the Cherokee County Herald in Centre, Ala.
