3 South Jersey papers to combine into 1 daily

    Three southern New Jersey newspapers are going to combine to publish a new daily edition.

    The seven-day-a-week South Jersey Times will debut in November. It will combine the Gloucester County Times, the News of Cumberland County and Today’s Sunbeam in Salem.

    The three papers are published by South Jersey Media Group. General manager Joseph P. Owens says reporters, editors and photographers from the three newspapers will contribute to the new daily.

    The new South Jersey Times also will be published online at www.nj.com.

    Owens said sales, distribution, artists, business office and other staff members will continue in their roles.

    South Jersey Times will target news and advertising to northern and southern portions of the region.

    South Jersey Media Group is part of Penn Jersey Advance, a division of Advance Publications.
