The owner of the East Valley Tribune announced this week it has acquired 15 newspapers in Texas.

Randy Miller, president of 1013 Communications, said the company acquired Star Community Newspapers group. It serves a series of fast-growing communities north and east of Dallas, including Plano, Frisco, Allen, McKinney and Mesquite.

Roger Will, publisher of Star Community Newspapers, said joining 1013 Communications is “great news for the communities we serve.”

“The acquisition provides for continued independent publishing of award-winning newspapers in some of the country’s fastest-growing communities,” Will said. “The leadership of 1013 and of Star Community Newspapers share a common vision that provides an independent local voice for our regions.”

In addition to the East Valley Tribune, 1013 Communications publishes in Arizona the Daily News-Sun in Sun City, the Glendale/Peoria Today, Surprise Today, the Ahwatukee Foothills News and the Explorer, a 50,000-circulation free-distribution weekly in suburban Tucson. It also owns the Arizona Interactive Media Group, which includes the Clipper Marketplace in Phoenix.
