Calkins Media, Inc. was a media company. Established in 1937, Calkins Media brands included daily newspapers and digital sites in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, a weekly newspaper in South Dade, Fla., and broadcast stations located in Huntsville, Ala., Tallahassee and Sarasota, Fla. Corporate and digital headquarters were located in Bucks County, Pa.
In 2016, Raycom Media agreed to purchase Calkins Media's three television stations. A sale of WAAY-TV to Raycom affiliate American Spirit Media was blocked by the Department of Justice due to Raycom's ownership of WAFF. Raycom closed on the purchase of WWSB and WTXL-TV on May 1, 2017, while WAAY-TV was instead sold to Heartland Media.
In 2017, GateHouse Media and Ogden Newspapers agreed to terms to purchase Calkins Media's newspaper assets.
