History Of The Omaha World-Herald.

The Omaha World-Herald has had only six publishers in its history: Gilbert M. Hitchcock (1885-1934); Henry Doorly (1934-1955); Walter E. Christenson (1955-1966); Harold W. Andersen (1966-1989); John Gottschalk (1989 - 2007); Terry Kroeger (since 2008).

OWH was Founded in 1885 by Gilbert M. Hitchcock, the Omaha World-Herald provides news, commentary, information and advertising that encourage readers to become involved in the world around them. The World-Herald was family owned until 1963 when Peter Kiewit purchased The World-Herald to ensure the paper would continue to be locally owned. After Kiewit's death in 1979 the Company was employee owned until December of 2011 when Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway purchased the paper to once again insure local ownership. Under Berkshire Hathaway ownership, The World-Herald is the largest newspaper in the BH Media Group which consists of 28 daily and 40 weekly newspapers in nine states.

Omaha World-Herald Print Advertising for Omaha Businesses.

Business owners use advertising to help increase brand recognition, product sales, new foot traffic and repeat business. Common advertising outlets include radio, television, Internet, magazines and newspapers. Although advertising your business via non-print outlets such as radio or television can be advantageous, local newspaper advertising offers many benefits that make investment on your part worthwhile.

The Omaha World-Herald reaches over 660 Thousand People EVERY WEEK with our newspaper. Businesses frequently turn to the Omaha World-Herald to market and advertise their offerings because of our ability to reach large numbers of people on a regular basis. When you need to reach a large audience with your brand, the Omaha World-Herald is the largest local exposure for your marketing dollars.

The Benefits of Advertising with The Omaha World-Herald Newspaper

Proactive Audience

Omaha World-Herald readers often actively look for advertising in newspapers to search for deals and coupons. Placing your ad in a newspaper doesn't guarantee that readers will notice it, but a reader actively looking for deals is likely to notice your ad, take the time to read it and possibly act on a sale or offer.

Positive Expectations

Many people feel that certain forms of advertising such as commercials and website pop-up ads are intrusive. In the Omaha World-Herald, ads are often expected by readers, and their placement is often near content similar to the ad content -- for example, a shoe store ad in the Living section or a computer store ad in the Business section. As this type of placement makes an ad less intrusive, a negative consumer reaction is less likely.

Targeted Audience

Besides ad placement in sections near similar content, Omaha World-Herald advertising can target a specific audience in other ways. For example, we often have special sections, releases and inserts, that target audiences based on events such as a holiday or sports, specific geographic areas such as a street or neighborhood or specific groups of people such as ethnic groups or college students.

Reputation Building

Omaha World-Herald publishers work hard to create positive relationships with members of the community to build a loyal customer base. As a publisher's reputation grows, community members begin to trust the company for providing timely and accurate information and often begin to believe that a trusted local publisher won't do business with companies that are untrustworthy. By advertising with a trusted local newspaper that has a loyal customer base, you can build a positive reputation in the community simply through this association.

Last Minute Changes

Another benefit of advertising with the Omaha World-Herald is rapid turnaround on production changes. If you need to make last-minute changes to your ad, our advertising department can get the job done quickly.

Options and Extras

The Omaha World-Herald offers small-business owners a wide range of advertising options that can fit nearly any budget. Options include small 1-inch-square classified ads, column ads in various sizes by the column inch, half-page or full-page spreads. We also have many extra services, such as color printing, design assistance, a slightly large ad or inclusion of your ad in the publisher's other products, such as magazines or brochures.
