HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) -- The company that operates the Quincy (Illinois) Herald-Whig and other media outlets is buying a daily newspaper from across the Mississippi River.

Quincy Media Inc. announced Friday it will purchase the Hannibal (Missouri) Courier-Post from GateHouse Media. The purchase is expected to close this summer.

Quincy Media Vice President Ron Wallace, who also is publisher of the Herald-Whig, says the purchase will bring control of the Courier-Post back to the Hannibal area.

Quincy Media is a family-owned company in operation since 1926. It operates two newspapers -- the Herald-Whig and the New Jersey Herald in Newton, New Jersey, and has broadcast properties in 16 markets.
