Portland-based Pamplin Media Group bought the Central Oregonian, which publishes twice a week in Prineville.

The transaction follows a deal in January, when Pamplin purchased six other newspapers from Eagle — the Madras Pioneer, Woodburn Independent, Canby Herald, Newberg Graphic, Molalla Pioneer and Wilsonville Spokesman. It also follows the launch of the Hillsboro Tribune last fall.

Altogether, the Pamplin Media Group, a subsidiary of R.B. Pamplin Corp., now includes 25 community newspapers, plus two radio stations and affiliated websites. The group regularly reaches nearly a million people through its print products, websites and radio stations KPAM AM860 and KKOV AM1550.
