Newhouse: Advance Media Pleased with 'Times-Pic' Evolution
Posted: 8/2/2013 | By: Stephanie Riegel | Business Report
As the newspaper war between The Times-Picayune and The Advocate rages on in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Steven Newhouse—chairman of Advance Media, which publishes The Times-Picayune and Nola.com—tells Daily Report he is "absolutely pleased" with the success The Times-Picayune has had since reducing its print circulation to three days a week.
"We are committed and have no intention of doing anything other than stay the course and continue to work hard to earn the patronage of our readers," Newhouse said in a telephone interview. "I have known [Times-Picayune editor] Jim Amoss for many, many years, and he truly is one of the greatest editors that I have ever met and he continues to be right at the top of his game, and [Advance Media president] Ricky Mathews is really a strong leader and has done a terrific job."
