McClatchy Making More From Online Ads Than Other Papers


McClatchy claims 15% of its ad revenue comes from the Web, more than most newspaper publishers pull in from online ads. McClatchy’s papers will generate $200 million in digital revenue this year at a higher profit margin than its print business, CEO Gary Pruitt claimed at the Newspaper Association of America’s annual meeting.
