The eight titles in the Voice series, based in Truro, will form part of Tindle Newspapers Cornwall Ltd following the acquisition from AD’ Sales Limited, owned by Peter Masters.
Promoted as “a hub for communities across Cornwall” the Voice titles cover Newquay, St Austell, Truro, Bodmin, Saltash, Liskeard, Penzance and Camborne.
Voice Newspapers staff, who have been notified of the sale, will join Tindle Newspapers Cornwall Ltd.
