KOS Media publishes Kent on Sunday newspaper, launched in 2002, and a series of free weekly newspapers, magazines and associated websites and mobile products. Its magazines and supplements include the Review lifestyle, entertainment and property guide, Isle Magazine, Visit Kent and Taste of Kent.
Adrian Jeakings, CEO of Archant, said: “We are delighted to bring KOS Media fully into our portfolio of regional titles. This acquisition strengthens Archant’s existing presence in Kent and provides a springboard for further investment. We look forward to working with the Managing Director Paul Stannard and his team, to develop this vibrant business.”
Paul Stannard, managing director of KOS Media Publishing, said: “I am delighted Archant has taken on full ownership of KoS Media. We will benefit from ownership by a large, well financed, independent group with ambitious plans to grow the business.”
