Owner and publisher Kerry Farley sold the paper to local radiologist and nightclub owner Mehdi Adineh, who hired Paul Noah to be his publisher. Noah brings a diverse background to City Paper, including stints as a radio personality and in radio sales. Most recently he ran a promotions and marketing agency in Dayton. He tells AAN News he "has no intention from deviating from the path" set by Farley, who has been publisher of the paper since 2001 and its owner since 2005. Farley tells us that after he finishes up a stint advising the new owner and publisher, he will do a little traveling and then decide what comes next. "I've been doing this for 15 years," he says. "It's kind of time." Terms of the deal, effective Jan. 1, were not disclosed.
