CLAREMONT, N.H. — Newly formed Sunshine Communications, a division of the Sunshine Initiative Public Benefit Corp., announced the acquisition of the Claremont Eagle Times from Sample News Group earlier this month.

“I am very excited to return ownership of the Eagle Times back to New Hampshire,” said Jay Lucas, the paper’s new owner. “As someone who grew up getting our news from the Eagle, as well as remembering how exciting it was when my photo from my football days or my name being listed in the paper from honor roll, it is important we keep the spirit of this publication local, relevant and worthwhile for the communities it serves.” In addition to the acquisition of the Eagle Times, Sunshine Communications also has taken ownership of the Newport-Argus Champion and the Newport Times.
