BUTLER, Pennsylvania — The publisher of western Pennsylvania's Butler Eagle daily newspaper is buying the alternative weekly Pittsburgh City Paper.

Eagle Media Corp. president Vernon Wise III announced the deal Thursday.

The City Paper has provided entertainment and cultural news for 25 years. Steel City Media is selling the weekly to focus attention on the Pittsburgh radio stations it owns, including 92.9 FM and BOB FM 96.9.

Vance Smith, a fifth-generation member of the Wise family, was named publisher of City Paper, which has been printed in Butler for about 10 years. Butler is about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Smith says no personnel changes are expected at City Paper.

Eagle Media Corp. also owns the twice-weekly Cranberry Eagle, Harmony Outdoor billboard company and the Butler Color Press, which produces advertising circulars.
