In the past two years, Buffett’s company has purchased more than two dozen papers, making Berkshire Hathaway the nation’s ninth-largest newspaper group. In a keynote address to APME, Buffett’s "newspaper guy,” Terry Kroeger, CEO of BH Media Group and publisher of the Omaha World-Herald, will explain the company’s strategy.
