Cowles Media Company

Cowles Media Company (1935 to 1998) was a newspaper, magazine and information publishing company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the United States. The company operated Cowles Business Media, Cowles Creative Publishing and Cowles Enthusiast Media units. The McClatchy Company purchased Cowles Media in 1998. McClatchy kept the Star Tribune newspaper, which by then was the primary asset in the $1.4 billion deal, and sold the other business units to Primedia and to a management team.

Other newspapers owned at one time by Cowles Media and its affiliates included the Buffalo Courier-Express, the Des Moines Register, the Scottsdale Progress and the Rapid City Journal. Cowles Media also published Look as Look, Inc. (1937–45), Cowles Magazines (1946–65), and Cowles Communications, Inc. (1965–71).

Famous quotes containing the words company and/or media:

    If it were not for the company of fools, a witty man would often be greatly at a loss.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Today the discredit of words is very great. Most of the time the media transmit lies. In the face of an intolerable world, words appear to change very little. State power has become congenitally deaf, which is why—but the editorialists forget it—terrorists are reduced to bombs and hijacking.
    John Berger (b. 1926)
