YUMA, AZ (AP) -

The Yuma Sun has been sold to a privately owned publisher of several daily and weekly newspapers in Rhode Island.

Officials with the Sun announced the deal Tuesday with Rhode Island Suburban Newspapers Inc., which is a part of Horizon Publications. Horizon publishes newspapers across the U.S. and Canada.

The Sun reported that it was purchased along with its sister property, the Porterville Recorder in Porterville, Calif., from Freedom Communications for an undisclosed sum.

Sun Publisher Joni Brooks says the newspaper doesn't anticipate any personnel changes after the sale, which becomes effective Wednesday.

The newspaper in southwestern Arizona published its first issue in April 1896.
