CNHI, LLC, has acquired The Transylvania Times from The Transylvania Times, Inc., a family-owned company for the past 80 years.

The sale closed on May 6.

The terms of the sale were not disclosed.

The Transylvania Times is the latest addition to Montgomery, Alabama-based CNHI, which operates 91 community newspapers, websites and niche publications in 22 Midwest, Southeast, Southwest and Northeast states.

The North Carolina paper’s history dates to July 1, 1887.

The newspaper had been owned by the Anderson and Trapp families since 1941

The paper currently publishes twice a week: Mondays and Thursdays.

Co-publishers Sean and Leigh Trapp were the third generation to run the newspaper.

Their mother, Stella Anderson Trapp, published and edited the paper for more than 30 years before passing away in December of 2020.

“We are honored to be able to continue the journalism and public service legacy of The Transylvania Times in serving the residents and businesses throughout Transylvania County,” said Donna Barrett, president and CEO of CNHI. “We are committed to the newspaper’s role as a significant institution and source of information in the market.”

The paper was first named The Transylvania Pioneer.

Later titles included The French Broad Hustler, The Sylvan Valley News and the Brevard News.

The newspaper became The Transylvania Times in 1931.
