- Sources close to the situation said Gannett Co., Tribune Co., Hearst Corp., Media News Group and Cox Newspapers may band together to form a common ad sales force that could offer national advertisers “one-stop shopping” for ad space on big-market Web sites across the nation.
Actually, Yahoo’s efforts with newspapers are mostly about Classifieds. But it was definitely jockeying for a position to do this kind of thing for a gang of newspapers, too.
