Morris Media Network has expanded its portfolio with the acquisition of Carolina Parenting, Inc., a publisher of monthly and annual publications. MMN’s growing portfolio includes newspapers, magazines, websites, books and other media products throughout the U.S.

As part of the deal MMN is gaining three monthly magazines, Charlotte Parent, Carolina Parent and Piedmont Parent, plus four annual publications.

"The monthly parent magazines, the annuals and the digital products all fit perfectly in rounding out our Charlotte portfolio, strengthens our core city magazine position, and will serve to open the door to expand into the travel space in the Triangle and the Triad, Karen Rodriguez, MMN’s regional vice president, says in a statement "I am very excited about the opportunities this presents to MMN and look forward to the expansion."

MMN’s magazine portfolio is a mixed bag. The company has titles that focus on travel, equine, sporting, lifestyle, regional/local and now parenting.
