Regional Publishing becomes Southwest Regional Publishing!

A new chapter in Southwest Suburban journalism began this week, with the sale of The Regional News and The Reporter to a company dedicated to excellence and service.


The two weekly newspapers that had been owned by the Regional Publishing Corp., as well as the company’s printing press, Palos Heights headquarters and other assets, have been acquired by Southwest Community Publishing Co. The new entity will be called Southwest Regional Publishing Co.
