The Republic plans to find a new home in Columbus as it continues to grow into a more diverse media company.

Rayanna Corp., a local company established by the Brown-Marshall family of Columbus, owns the building at 333 Second St. that has housed the daily newspaper since 1971 and intends to sell it.

The newspaper is looking for an existing building in the city of Columbus to be its new home and anticipates moving by the end of the year.

When AIM Media purchased The Republic, it opted not to purchase the building in downtown Columbus. Instead, AIM Media is looking to the future and for a flexible workspace more suited to the technologies and systems needed for a new generation of media companies, said Jeremy Halbreich, chairman and CEO.
