Clarity Media Group
Clarity Media Group is the holding company for media properties owned by Philip F. Anschutz. These include the San Francisco Examiner and the Washington Examiner. An Examiner newspaper in Baltimore was shut down in February 2009.
Clarity Media has trademarked the name "Examiner" for possible future newspapers in dozens of other U.S. cities. The company also operates news portal websites in numerous cities under the "examiner.com" name, and is seeking editors to oversee regional and local content for those websites.
Ryan McKibben is Clarity Media Group's CEO.
