Trib Total Media announced on Friday it intends to sell nine publications in Western Pennsylvania, including four daily newspapers.

“Our plan to sell these newspapers is part of a larger strategic growth plan that the board of directors has developed over the course of the past year,” said Jennifer Bertetto, president and CEO of Trib Total Media.

She said the death last year of Trib owner Dick Scaife prompted a strategic review of the company, which produces 77 publications.

The daily newspapers offered for sale are The Valley Independent in Monessen, the Leader Times in Kittanning, The Daily News in McKeesport and the Daily Courier in Connellsville.

Also up for sale is the Laurel Group, which publishes weekly newspapers in Westmoreland County. Those publications are The Mount Pleasant Journal, The Independent-Observer, The Ligonier Echo, The Times-Sun and The Jeannette Spirit.

“Additional investments are planned to enhance our digital offerings that will allow us to deliver the news where, when and how our readers would like to receive it,” said Bertetto, who became the company's top officer in January.
