Albany- An old Albany newspaper is changing hands after more than 50 years of the same ownership. Sam Farkas Jr. is the new publisher of The Albany Journal.

He purchased the paper from Pauline Davis. The format of the paper will stay the same. Farkas says they'll cover serious news, as well as stories about community members they believe people need to know about.

"You'll see news breaking gossip that people thought was gossip, but it's truly news," Farkas said. "That's what I think the benefit of the paper is for."

Farkas is involved with two other Albany businesses. Those businesses are Container Services Incorporated and Planetary Holdings Incorporated.
