Daily News teams with Yahoo

Daily News owner MediaNews and six other newspaper publishing groups, including Hearst and Belo, announced a new partnership with Yahoo on Sunday. The papers and Yahoo will share job ads, search functions and content, though details were sketchy. "We are getting married to Yahoo in a sense," MediaNews chief Dean Singleton said in a conference call. "We don't know what the Web is going to look like in three years. We just know we are going to do it with Yahoo." The deal includes 176 newspapers in 38 states and is partly in response to news that Google would publish ads in some newspapers.
