Terry Kroeger, Publisher and CEO of Omaha World Herald, was the guest speaker at February’s Omaha Press Club Noon Forum.
Kroeger talked about the recent sale of the newspaper to Warren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway. He also discussed how the sale will affect the paper in the future as well how it came about. Kroeger says the World Herald editorial writers won’t be influenced by the paper being owned by Buffett.
"Mr. Buffett has never called anyone in our organization about any news issue. Has not happened, I don’t expect it to happen. I would be really surprised if it did happen. And, to be candid, if it did start to happen, I think a lot of people would not stay because that’s really not what we are about.”
Terry Kroeger’s complete presentation will air on Monday, March 12th at 12:00 on KIOS.
