1995, the long-independent "Salem Evening News" was bought for US$16.5 million by Ottaway Community Newspapers, a division of Dow Jones & Companyand owner of two of the "Evening News" 'schief daily competitors, the evening "Beverly Times" (9,000 circulation) and "Peabody Times" (3,000 circulation). The "Evening News" had a circulation around 36,000 at the time of the sale. Ottaway's Essex County Newspapers division, which also published the " Gloucester Daily Times" and " The Daily News of Newburyport", moved its headquarters to the "Evening News" 'sBeverly offices.

Ottaway, which still owns the "
Cape Cod Times" and "The Standard-Times" in southeastern Massachusetts, seven years later sold its Essex County holdings, including the Salem paper, to their top competitor.
The Eagle-Tribune" of North Andover bought the North Shore chain in 2002, paying US$70 million for the Gloucester, Newburyport and Salem papers. "Eagle-Tribune" executives touted the creation of a regional news organization; they also laid off some 45 staffers at the Essex County papers, including the editors of the Newburyport and Salem papers.

Community Newspaper Holdings, an Alabamacompany, in 2005. ["Eagle-Tribune Chain Sold to Ala. Newspaper Group". "The Patriot Ledger" (Quincy, Mass.), July 28, 2005.]
