WorldNow adds first newspaper group


WorldNow is well known in the television industry for its online Content Management System (CMS), serving over 400 local media sites, primarily associated with TV stations. Now, though, it has added its first daily newspaper client.

Quincy Newspapers Inc. has signed to use the WorldNow CMS for its two newspapers, the Quincy Herald-Whig in Illinois and the New Jersey Herald in Sussex County, NJ. Not surprisingly, the company is already associated with WorldNow for its 12 television stations.

“We believe in the WorldNow model,” said Mary Winters, Vice President of Quincy’s Interactive and Newspapers Divisions. “They have the ability to provide us the scale we need to compete in all aspects in the digital space and are taking us far beyond the next level.”

“We are extremely proud to have won the confidence of Quincy’s newspaper group,” said Charlie Ponger, Vice President Distribution and Client Development for WorldNow’s Online Publishing Group. “Our relationship with Quincy will help open the doors to other newspapers who will want to learn more about our comprehensive business model as a great alternative.”
