Swift Newspapers has reached an agreement to purchase the Lahontan Valley News and Fallon Eagle Standard newspaper from David Henley. The newspaper will become part of Tahoe Carson Area Newspapers group, headquartered in Carson City.

TCAN General Manager Peter Starren said, “We are most fortunate to soon include a paper with such high journalistic accomplishment to our group of great newspapers. Mr. Henley and his staff have won numerous statewide journalism awards from the Nevada Press Association. This newspaper, already very strong on local news, will work with others in the group to make it and our other newspapers the best news source in Northern Nevada. We’re all very proud and excited.”

The Lahontan Valley News and Fallon Eagle Standard is published six days a week with a circulation of 4,000. It has a long history with deep community roots and celebrates its centennial in December.

Tahoe-Carson Area Newspapers include the Sierra Sun in Truckee, Tahoe Daily Tribune, Nevada Appeal in Carson City, the Record-Courier in Gardnerville, North Lake Tahoe Bonanza in Incline Village and Tahoe World in Tahoe City.
