(AP) Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. is adding the Greensboro, N.C., News & Record to its growing newspaper division.


Berkshire Hathaway said Thursday that it bought the 122-year-old daily newspaper from Landmark Media Enterprises, based in Norfolk, Va.


Financial terms were not disclosed. The Omaha World-Herald, which oversees Berkshire's newspaper division, reported that the News & Record has daily circulation of 58,000 and Sunday circulation of 86,000.


Terry Kroeger, who leads the newspaper unit, says the Greensboro newspaper will be a great fit with the other small and medium-sized community newspapers Berkshire has purchased.


Newspapers remain a relatively small part of Berkshire Hathaway, which owns an assortment of more than 80 subsidiaries and holds major stakes in companies like Coca-Cola Co., Wells Fargo and IBM.
