BH Media, the conglomerate that owns the Floyd Press, Roanoke Times, Richmond Times-Dispatch and more than 30 other newspapers in the country added the Martinsville Bulletin and the Franklin News-Post to its collection this week.

Both newspapers were owned by Haskell Newspapers.  BH Media is the 11th largest newspaper chain in the nation and is wholly-owned by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway in Omaha, Nebraska.

Besides the Times and the Times-Dispatch, BH also owns the Lynchburg News & Advance, the Bristol Herald-Courier, the Charlottesville Daily Progress, the Danville Register & Bee, the Waynesboro News, the Culpeper Star-Exponent and a number of weeklies.
