Hour Media has acquired all of Greenspring’s assets and plans to continue to produce its publications—such as Minnesota Monthly, Midwest Home, Drinks, RealFood, and Where Twin Cities — under their current titles, according to to Twin Cities Business.

"This sale allows us to channel our energies toward finding the best ways to serve our current audiences while reaching out to new and diverse audiences," APMG President Jon McTaggart said in a statement.

Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal says Hour Media publishes Hour DetroitDetroit Home and DBusiness online and in print. No dollar amounts or other figures in the deal were disclosed.
