CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The Evening Post Publishing Co. has changed its name to Evening Post Industries.

The Post and Courier, which is owned by Evening Post Industries, reports the Charleston-based company will remain a news and information provider. It publishes three daily newspapers and 11 weekly newspapers, mostly in South Carolina, and operates a book publishing unit.
It also has three subsidiaries in St. Paul, Minn.
Cordillera Communications operates 11 network-affiliated television stations, Informed Interactive provides digital services and Clear Night Group is a new marketing services division.
Evening Post Industries is also developing 12 acres on the Charleston peninsula and controls South Carolina timber holdings through its White Oak Forestry subsidiary.
