Chronicle Shows The Way For Legacy Papers

The San Francisco Chronicle has been profitable for four straight years, and is adding editorial and business staff. Revenue is growing at a rate of about 4% per year, says Publisher Jeff Johnson. That’s at a time when revenue at most of the major publicly traded newspaper companies has continued to drop.
