Company Description (as filed with the SEC)
The McClatchy Company (the "Company," "we," "us" or "our") is a leading local media company that provides both print and digital news and advertising services in the markets we serve. We have more than a century and a half of experience in mass and targeted media with our origins in the California Gold Rush era of 1857. Originally incorporated in California as McClatchy Newspapers, Inc., our three original California newspapers – The Sacramento Bee, The Fresno Bee and The Modesto Bee – were the core of our business until 1979, when we began to diversify geographically outside of California. At that time, we purchased two newspapers in the Northwest, the Anchorage Daily News and the Tri-City Herald in southeastern Washington.

We expanded into the Carolinas when we purchased newspapers in South Carolina in 1990 and The News and Observer Publishing Company in North Carolina in 1995. ... More ...
