The Pamplin Media Group is launching a new newspaper called the Hillsboro Tribune on Sept. 7.
Mark Garber, president of the Portland Tribune and Community Newspapers, said the paper initially would publish twice monthly and have a strong Web presence from the start.
“Hillsboro has always been the missing link in our company,” Garber said.
The Pamplin Media Group, which is locally owned by Robert Pamplin Jr., publishes a dozen Portland-area weekly newspapers. Its holdings already include five Washington County papers — the Forest Grove News-Times, the Beaverton Valley Times, The Times (serving Tigard, Tualatin and Sherwood), the Sherwood Gazette and the Regal Courier in King City. The group also publishes the weekly Portland Tribune and weekly or twice-weekly newspapers in Lake Oswego, Gresham, West Linn, Clackamas, Oregon City, Sandy, Estacada and Columbia County. In addition, it publishes other local monthly newspapers and owns two radio stations.
