WILKES-BARRE, Pennsylvania , March 5, 2012 () – The owner of The Times Leader in Wilkes-Barre says it has been acquired by a Philadelphia-based investment firm.

Impressions Media said Monday it was purchased by Versa Capital Management LLC. Terms were not disclosed.

Impressions operates The Times Leader as well as several community papers, websites and digital media businesses in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Veteran Times Leader executive Prashant Shitut was named president and CEO of the media company.
