Cribb, GREENE & COPE

ABOUT US

Formed in 1923 by Clyde Knox in Kansas City, Cribb, Greene & Cope is the oldest newspaper and publication brokerage in the United States. We have sold thousands of publishing companies over the past ninety plus years, and have appraised thousands more.

Cribb, Greene & Cope publication brokers have more than sixty years of publishing and brokerage experience, and our financial and market analysts have seventy combined years of newspaper financial and marketing experience. Unlike most investment banking and commercial business brokerage firms, Cribb, Greene & Cope specializes in meeting the needs of daily and weekly publishing companies. 

We believe that honesty, integrity, publishing industry knowledge and industry contacts are our core assets. Our commitment is to do the best possible job for our client in every aspect of our assignment every time.

Cribb, Greene & Cope has done valuations on hundreds of publishing titles and we feel our evaluations reflect accurate market values. Our appraisals have been used for estate planning, loans, partnerships, venture capital/financial backing, taxes, Employee Stock Ownership Plans, shareholder value, minority ownership and market value.

Please contact us directly if you would like to discuss a valuation. CG&C also offers desktop review valuations which are more modestly priced, and evaluation for a potential sale price is included in the marketing process when CG&C is retained to represent a client.
