Nampa newspaper buys Kuna-Melba weekly

A weekly newspaper in Kuna will become a publication of the Nampa-based Idaho Press-Tribune.

The Press-Tribune reports that its parent company, Pioneer News Group, is buying the Kuna Melba News from Bellevue, Washington-based RIM Publications in a deal expected to be completed this week.

Idaho Press-Tribune President and Publisher Matt Davison says the addition of the newspaper offers enormous potential to provide top-notch local journalism to Kuna and Melba for many years to come.

Idaho Press-Tribune officials say that starting next week, the Kuna Melba News will have a new design, a larger broadsheet page format and more coverage of city government, schools, business and the community.
