DAYTON, Ohio — Cox Enterprises Inc. says it has repurchased its three Ohio newspapers, allowing daily print publication to continue. Printing seven days a week was in danger after the company sold its properties to New York-based Apollo Global Management last year. The Federal Communications Commission has said Apollo could buy Atlanta-based Cox's TV stations only if it stopped publishing a daily paper in the Dayton market. Jana Collier is interim operations leader for the Ohio newspapers. Collier called the decision the best possible outcome for the newspapers, which are the Dayton Daily Daily News, the Springfield News-Sun and the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News.
