• Tribune to Sell Beverly Hills Courier


    San Marino Tribune President and Beverly Hills Courier Publisher Clif Smith and leading Beverly Hills philanthropist Paula Kent Meehan announced they reached a recent agreement to sell The Courier to a company wholly-owned by Meehan. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. The sale is not final until the transaction closes, which is expected to happen within 30 days.

    Smith, who will continue as president and publisher of the San Marino Tribune, said, “Paula is a dear friend of my wife, Candace, and me. She is a great friend of The Courier and the entire community of Beverly Hills. I cannot think of a more caring and conscientious owner.” Meehan said, “I’ve followed The Courier for years and am proud to become its owner.”

    Meehan, who is one of the major donors to The Wallis Annenberg Cultural Center and many charities, is expected to name current Associate Publisher Marcia Wilson Hobbs as publisher to succeed Smith. Both Meehan and Smith said they do not anticipate any significant changes to The Courier under new ownership.

    The Beverly Hills Courier is widely recognized as one of the most influential weekly community newspapers in the United States. It currently enjoys all-time high readership in its communities of Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Holmby Hills, Westwood, Century City, Trousdale, Brentwood and Palm Desert.
