A Gatehouse spokesman confirmed the move, first reported by the Ledger, but declined to provide additional details.

The Ledger reported that Daniels, who lives in Cohasset, plans to pursue investment and advisory roles for media companies.

The company owns 112 weekly and seven daily newspapers in New England, covering more than 100 communities in Eastern Massachusetts and Connecticut.
