Four months after taking over as publisher at Lake Norman Publications, Leslie Kahana is the new owner of the group of suburban Charlotte newspapers.
The deal with Mt. Pleasant, Wisc.-based American Hometown Publishing Inc. is effective Aug. 1.
Lake Norman Publications, headquartered in Huntersville, produces three weekly papers: the Herald Citizen, which covers the booming northern Mecklenburg County communities of Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson; the Mooresville Citizen, in rapidly growing southern Iredell County; and the Denver Citizen, which covers an area of Lincoln County near the lake that also is experiencing unprecedented growth.
LNP’s other publication, the Mountain Island Monitor, is a monthly whose coverage area includes parts of Mecklenburg and Gaston counties.
