IDAHO FALLS (KTVB) -- Post. Co. President Jerry Brady says the family-owned business that includes the Post Register and three other Idaho newspapers will be purchased by Minnesota-based Adams Publishing Group.

The Post Register reports that Brady in a letter to employees on Wednesday announced the sale expected to be finalized on Nov. 1. The other publications involved in the transaction are the Shelley Pioneer, Challis Messenger and Jefferson Star.

Adams Publishing Group publishes community newspapers, digital products and magazines in several states.

The Post Co. has been a family business since 1925. Brady in July told employees the company needed additional resources, and that there was an interested buyer.

The newspaper reports that Post Register Publisher Roger Plothow will remain in the same role after the sale.

Plothow says readers will not see a significant difference in the newspaper under the new ownership.
