Newport News-based Daily Press Media Group has extended its printing contract with BH Media Group in Richmond, both companies announced today.

The five-year extension would add to the existing contract with BH Media Group and the Richmond Times-Dispatch, which has been printing the Daily Press and its portfolio of publications since 2012.

“We are happy to announce that we will continue working together with BH Media Group,” said Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Marisa Porto. “The company and its team in Virginia have been great partners in our effort to produce quality newspapers for subscribers on the Virginia peninsula, and we look forward to working together in this renewed collaboration.”

Added RTD President and Publisher Thomas A. Silvestri: “We thank the Daily Press Media Group for its confidence in our capabilities and I applaud the Hanover team’s outstanding hard work which made the extension possible.”

BH Media Group will continue to print the Daily Press (daily), The Virginia Gazette (Wednesday and Saturday) and the Tidewater Review (Wednesday) out of the RTD Production Plant in Hanover County, which in 2017 is celebrating its 25th year of operation.
