The Pilot, which owns Pinestraw and four other magazines across the state, added one more to its fold Friday, agreeing to buy Walter, Raleigh’s arts and culture magazine, from Sacramento-based McClatchy, owner of The News & Observer.
“We’re excited to bring local ownership to Walter,” said Frank Daniels, Jr., a Raleigh native and The Pilot’s chairman and majority owner. “Raleigh is one of the great places to live, highlighted by its vibrant arts community and we’ll showcase it with every edition. We intend to make Walter the best city magazine in America. “
