KERA, North Texas' public radio provider, is looking to acquire the Denton Record-Chronicle, the two announced in a joint press release on Tuesday. Denton County's oldest newspaper has been owned by three entities—two of them family—since its inception in the early 1900s. It now looks like the Record-Chronicle could have a fourth owner by next year. KERA and the paper's owners said that both parties are currently in the discovery phase, but plan to complete the deal in 2023. The transaction is being facilitated by The National Trust for Local News, a nonprofit that works to preserve local ownership of news organizations.
