Despite its name, newspapers isn't the only game for this company. Ogden Newspapers is a leading publisher with more than 40 daily papers serving mostly small markets in about 15 states. Its portfolio includes The Messenger (Fort Dodge, Iowa), The News-Sentinel (Fort Wayne, Indiana), and the Wheeling News-Register (West Virginia). Ogden Newspapers also publishes several weekly papers and free shoppers; sister company Ogden Publications produces regional and niche interest magazines such as Mother Earth News. Other operations include commercial printing and phone directories. H.C. Ogden founded the Wheeling News in 1890. His descendents, the Nutting family, continue to control the business.
