A Mad River media mega-monopoly has formed. Via Facebook, the Arcata Eye announced it will join forces with Northern Humboldt's other hyper-local weekly newspaper the McKinleyville Press starting Oct. 2.

And the Mad River Union was born.

Arcata Eye publisher/editor/reporter Kevin Hoover announced in 2011 that the paper would cease publication in February, 2014, leading to a couple of years of rumors about who, if anyone, would fill the void.

Well, it seems Hoover and Jack Durham, who publishes the McKinleyville Press, struck an accord. The veteran newsmen worked together on the Arcata Union, the Eye's predecessor. (Journal Publisher Judy Hodgson and many other current and former Journalistas worked and wrote for the Union, as well.)
