Phoenix reborn, or at least resold

Alabama-based Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., which owns 15 dailies and a number of other newspapers in Oklahoma, is acquiring the Muskogee Daily Phoenix for an undisclosed sum.

No editorial changes are planned at the Phoenix, which has been owned for the last twenty-nine years by Gannett.

The Muskogee paper will be CNHI's third-largest in the state, behind the Norman Transcript and the Enid News & Eagle.
