US: Yahoo newspaper consortium growing

94 more newspapers have joined the Yahoo newspaper consortium, raising the number of newspapers in the partnership to 779, or 41 percent of total Sunday circulation.

The consortium's most prominent new member is the Sun-Times News Group, owners of the Chicago Sun-Times. Other new companies include Black Press, Stephens Media Group, and Independent Newspapers.

Newspapers in the consortium are allowed access to Yahoo's services, most notably to HotJobs, the job recruitment site, and to new advertising technology. Nearly 600 newspapers have added HotJobs.

"We have been impressed with how Yahoo and the newspaper consortium have jumpstarted the newspaper industry's digital presence," said Rich Surkamer, chief operating officer of the Sun-Times News Group.
