World-Herald Buys More Papers

The Omaha World-Herald reported today that it has gobbled up two more Nebraska daily newspapers, the Grand Island Independent and the York News-Times. The papers were owned by Gatehouse Media Inc. of Fairport, N.Y.

According to the World-Herald report, the Independent has a daily circulation of 20,500, and a Sunday circulation of 22,300. The News-Times' circulation is 4,700 Monday through Saturday.

The World-Herald distributes 220,000 copies on Sundays and 178,500 on the other days, according to the paper..

Great - the World-Herald is slowly monopolizing all the newspapers in the state of Nebraska. Great for the state of journalism in this state...LOL.

Wierd Herald already sucks as it is. I can't search online for Perrault being listed in "THE RECORD" any more.

11:39 -- obviously, the subtle art of sarcasm isn't something you grasp easily. The OWH is monopolizing newspapers in this state and driving good journalism out of the state.

Enough about the OWH. They're not going anywhere, they're positioning themselves for the future and most complainers are either ex-employees (see subtle bitter commentary in the original post), so deal with it.

Back to the important stuff. When are Perrault and Travis taking that gig on Sporting News radio?

whatever 152. you're just an executive that is about to get axed in the next round of cuts. how else do you think they can afford buying these papers...

The OWH may want to watch out - The City Weekly is annexing website addresses to take over the internet with different versions of this blog. The MINGE empire!

It is the mission of the City Weekly to spread the word to the world about Matt Perrault!

they probally want to put the indep. and YNT out of business to create "world hearld western edition" lol. Really though does every little town in nebraksa need their own paper?

Pity to GI Independent readers if the Weird Herald does to them what they do to another OWH owned paper, Krny Flub. There is hardly any national news in the Krny paper...just local. If you wanna kill a couple mins, read the Flub. I'm guessin OWH has the same plans for the GI paper. That way, they can let the in-town papers handle the local stuff. There will be still enough of a void for national news and Husker news, the locals will feel the need to buy the Weird Herald.
