Craig I. Forman Named To McClatchy's Board Of Directors

SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The McClatchy Company (NYSE: MNI) today announced the appointment of Craig I. Forman to its board of directors effective immediately.

Forman, 51, is a private investor and entrepreneur, a former media, technology and telecommunications executive and former Wall Street Journal bureau chief and foreign correspondent. He has held executive roles with Earthlink, Yahoo!, Time Warner, Infoseek, and Dow Jones.

"I'm thrilled to welcome Craig to McClatchy's board of directors," said McClatchy Chairman Kevin S. McClatchy. "As a top business and technology executive for some prominent brands, Craig has much to offer McClatchy's own digital evolution. And as a former journalist himself, he is keenly interested in helping to perpetuate McClatchy's news mission."

Forman's last executive management role was with the Atlanta-based internet services provider Earthlink in 2009, where he was president of the company's $1 billion consumer access and audience business. He previously served as the vice president and general manager for Yahoo's media and information divisions, overseeing Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Sports and Yahoo! Finance. Forman has led internet and new media divisions at Time Warner, was the vice president for product development and editor at the search engine Infoseek, and was the director and editor of international business information services for Dow Jones.

Since 2009, Forman has served as a director on a variety of public and private company boards. He is the executive chairman of the board of Appia, Inc., a Durham, N.C., based mobile-applications marketer and distributor.

Forman also serves on the boards of Coincident TV, LLC, a video technology company; MotiveCast, Inc., a social media and mobile gaming producer; Success Media, LLC, an online video training company; and Yellow Media, Inc., a Canadian publisher of print and digital business directories. Previously he served as executive chairman of WHERE, Inc., a leading mobile-advertising technology network acquired by eBay Inc. in 2011.
