Yahoo to partner with newspapers

Yahoo and a consortium of newspaper publishers are considering a partnership that will include Web classifieds, local news, and content packages based on general themes like travel, a Reuters report said.
The report, quoting BusinessWeek, said the move could drive more traffic to Yahoo's help-wanted HotJobs site.
Executives from Hearst Newspapers and MediaNews, which ran daily papers near Yahoo's headquarters, were spearheading the discussions along with other participants, the magazine reported.
