The Knoxville News Sentinel Media Group, a division of Scripps, has purchased AAN member Metro Pulse, the News Sentinel reports. "Metro Pulse will keep their editorial and advertising independence.

"Brian Conley will remain as the publisher of Metro Pulse but will only be involved in the editorial direction of the paper."
