At GateHouse Media, our mission is to deliver high quality and trusted journalism, products and services that enrich the communities we serve — our readers, commercial partners, employees and investors.
GateHouse publishes 620 community and business publications, including 125 daily newspapers, along with over 520 affiliated websites.
In 2015, we announced the acquisition of 34 daily newspapers — including award winning publications like the Sarasota Herald-Tribune and The Columbus Dispatch. We recently acquired Dolan Publishing, launching our entrance into business-to-business publishing. Our Propel Business Services division, which provides marketing and general business support to small and mid-sized businesses, continues to grow.
While we have experienced significant growth since 2012, we continually strive to make ourselves not just a bigger company, but a stronger company.

Community InvolvementGateHouse employees giving back to their communities
First Citizen Award – The State Journal-Register, Springfield, IL
The paper’s annual First Citizen award is presented to a local resident who has provided a lifetime of service to the Springfield community. The tradition, which dates back to 1963, keeps the winning recipient’s identity a secret until the First Citizen Gala and Legacy Awards. Winners receive a $1000 ad allotment from the SJR, trophy and recognition in the newspaper. Through community nominations and a publisher-chosen board, The Journal-Register also selects and presents Legacy Leadership Awards in five categories: Business, Young Entrepreneur, Education, Healthcare and a Service category whose winner is a leader or group from a non-profit or religious organization.
