Less than two months later, he was back on the job part-time and eventually returned on a full-time basis. In mid, however, Batten was diagnosed with brain cancer, and in March stepped down as CEO although he remained chairman. The revamping of the business information services division continued in the mids. In early Knight-Ridder acquired Technimetrics, a provider of investor relations information.
Early in , the Knight-Ridder Financial news wire was put up for sale after the company failed in a years-long effort to make inroads against the top three business wires. Two months later, Knight-Ridder made another significant divestment — this one outside the business information sector — when it sold its stake in TKR Cable to its partner Tele-Communications Inc. The acquired papers had a combined circulation of , daily and , Sunday. Unfortunately, was also the year in which a long, bitter, and sometimes violent strike began in Detroit and affected the two daily papers operating under the JOA, including the Detroit Free Press.
The company appeared to be banking on making up the losses in the long run by forcing the unions to accept lower wages. With the strike in Detroit stretching well into , Knight-Ridder faced an uncertain future. Having slimmed down to newspapers and business information services and cutting costs substantially in the process, the company now had to find ways to increase revenues from its core businesses revenue in had increased only 3.

Dutton, , p. Knight Ridder, Inc. Knight Ridder's newspapers have won 84 Pulitzer Prizes , and its online news service with the Tribune Company has become equally respected and used by millions around the world. Second only to the Gannett Company, Inc. What is today's Knight Ridder empire began as two separate newspaper groups which merged in A second publication was acquired in when Herman Ridder purchased the Staats-Zeitung, the nation's largest German-language paper, also based in New York.
Knight, considered a brilliant writer, began training his son John at an early age to replace him. In at age 25, he joined the Beacon Journal 's staff and became managing editor in He paid off the Beacon Journal 's debts within four years, and made it Akron's leading newspaper. John Knight's first major test as publisher came during a Akron rubber strike. Rubber was the city's major industry, and as the strike dragged on, money and advertising dried up. The Knights' first move was to distance the paper from the Miami political establishment, with whom it had close ties.
The Herald had two competitors; the Knights soon bought one, the Miami Tribune, which had been losing money. Knight closed the Tribune on December 1, , taking six of the paper's best people with him. In the next two years two local stories — a kidnapping case and a controversy over pasteurized milk — received national attention and won 14, new readers.

The paper lost much of its staff to the army, but several large military bases were set up in the Miami area, and the soldiers boosted the Herald 's circulation again. When a serious newsprint shortage created problems toward the end of the war, Hills and James Knight decided to cut advertising and circulation outside the Miami metropolitan area rather than editorial content, which wrested a large number of readers from its remaining competitor, the Miami News. He ordered the stories be more succinct, creating a brief storm of protest among some writers and readers.
The population of Dade County, Florida, nearly doubled in the years from to and the Herald 's circulation grew from 86, in to , in The paper won prestige and readership in Latin America , while the Herald 's Miami edition began to specialize in coverage of Latin America.
In the Herald 's printers began a lengthy, sometimes violent strike over wages and the length of their work week. They were among the best paid printers in the country but wanted to receive the same wages for working 35 hours as they were getting for working The strike dragged on, and on October 1, the paper's newsprint warehouse burned down in a mysterious fire.
Because of the strike, the Herald experimented with alternative production methods and ended up with production methods years ahead of those at most other papers. He encouraged individual style and quality writing, drawing a large number of excellent reporters and columnists from other papers.

At the time it was the biggest building in Florida and the most extensive newspaper printing plant ever built. It reflected the Knights' belief that the Herald — and Miami — would continue to grow, which they did. At the suggestion of Lee Hills, the Knights formed an executive committee in to undertake quarterly reviews of the operations of the Knight newspapers. Chapman, Jr. He introduced computers for administration, layout, typesetting, and production; and for improving the circulation, advertising, and business departments.
Chapman mandated budgeting at all Knight newspapers, which was rarely done at small and medium-sized newspapers.
Additional papers bought by Knight in continued the company's strategy of owning more than one newspaper in a market, often eliminating competition. By the end of the s Knight's combined daily circulation had risen to 2. Knight was considered a well-managed, highly profitable, and very aggressive newspaper group, although its editorial content was not always top quality. Knight Ridder is the nation's second largest newspaper publisher, with products in print and online.
The company publishes 31 daily newspapers in 28 U. Knight Ridder also has investments in a variety of Internet and technology companies and two newsprint companies. The company's Internet operation, Knight Ridder Digital, develops and manages the company's online properties. It is the founder and operator of Real Cities www. Herman Ridder, founder of the Ridder group, had worked his way up through the ranks at the Staats-Zeitung after its purchase in Influenced by the success of the rival Gannett group, both Knight and Ridder had gone public in to raise capital for acquisitions.
The groups described the potential benefits of a merger to their stockholders as "a broader and more diversified income base, greater newspaper size, mix and geographical distribution, and a stronger balance sheet. At the time of the merger Knight owned 16 dailies in seven states, while Ridder owned or had a substantial interest in 19 dailies in ten states. The Ridder dailies were all in exclusive markets, while the Knight's three largest revenue yielders — in Miami, Detroit, and Philadelphia — all faced competition.
At the time of the merger Time magazine reported July 22, that in general, "the Ridder papers do not have the heft and influence of the Knight dailies. The new company had 35 newspapers in 25 cities, combined circulation averaging 3. Other large companies published newspapers but were diversified, while Knight-Ridder focused on newspapers alone both had agreed to sell noncore holdings as part of the Federal Communications Commission 's conditions for merging.
The new company continued to give its newspapers editorial autonomy while maintaining strict central control of business operations with papers organized into three groups along geographical lines. Ridder, Jr. James Knight died in at the age of The company relocates its headquarters from Miami to the Silicon Valley. While other media companies went on newspaper-buying binges, Knight-Ridder watched from the sidelines, believing newspapers were a mature market.
Knight-Ridder instead moved into other areas, buying radio stations and entering the cable television market in In addition, the company started Viewdata Corporation, which offered news and financial services on home computers. The company also moved into computer-based graphics services; the Knight-Ridder Graphics Network went online in October , at first servicing only newspapers in the group.
Within a year it was used by 28 of the chain's newspapers and had outside subscribers in North America and Europe. By the later years of the decade, many felt Knight-Ridder had lost touch with its readers. Hispanics accounted for half the population of the Miami area, but only 20 percent of them read the Miami Herald.
