More on Tribune’s Online Earnings: Revs Total $180 Million

We covered Tribune’s Q4 earnings yesterday…some more details from the transcript of the conference call, on Media Stock Blog.

“Interactive was strong, with revenues up 43% overall, and CareerBuilder revenues increased 75%. Revenues from our interactive operations totaled $180 million. If you add our share of revenues from joint ventures, such as CareerBuilder and Classified Ventures, which are not included in consolidated revenues, this category totaled nearly $300 million in 2005.

On interactive acquisitions: What we said, and what we will continue to say, is that we are looking to expand that part of our business. We will look for acquisitions on our own or, as we have done very successfully with our partners, sort of the network affiliate type model, where multiple partners invest in a network type operation and get the advantages at our local newspapers, the equivalent of affiliates. So we’ll look at both types of acquisition.”
