Harte Hanks Summary Information

Harte Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS) is a marketing services agency that builds relevant, connected, and customer interactions across digital and traditional marketing. It is an American marketing services company headquartered in Uptown San Antonio, Texas. It was formerly a publisher of newspapers and pennysaver products and owned broadcast media companies including TV and Radio Stations. Founded by Houston Harte and Bernard Hanks in 1923 as Harte-Hanks Newspapers (and later Harte-Hanks Communications), the company spent its first 50 years operating newspapers in Texas. In 1968, the company relocated from Abilene to San Antonio. It made its first IPO in March 8, 1972, later diversifying into television and radio properties. In 1984, the owners took it private, later going public again in 1993. In the mid-1990s, the company withdrew from the newspaper and broadcasting business and focused solely on direct marketing and shopper publications. Harte Hanks' first newspapers were Hank's Abilene Reporter-News, and Harte's San Angelo Standard. Other early acquisitions in the 1920 and 1930s included Harlingen Star, Corpus Christi Times, Big Spring Herald, and Paris News. The company incorporated as Harte-Hanks Newspapers, Inc. in 1948. The company bought two competing newspapers in Greenville, Texas in the mid-1950s, consolidating them into the Herald-Banner after two years of fierce rivalry. In 1962, the company took full ownership of San Antonio Express News and later sold it off to Rupert Murdoch for $19 million in 1973. In 1972, the company owned properties in 19 markets across six states. By 1980, the company owned 29 daily and 68 weekly newspapers, but its fastest growing division was the consumer direct marketing, which included marketing agencies, market research firms, and direct-mail distributors. In 1995, Harte Hanks sold to Community Newspaper Company, its interest in Massachusetts-based Middlesex news, two other dailies, and associated weeklies in the western suburbs of Boston. It had owned the News since 1972 and bought the News-Tribune and Daily Transcript in 1986. The Abilene, Anderson, Corpus Christi, and San Angelo papers were among the last Harte Hanks properties divested, sold to E. W. Scripps Company in May, 1997. The company made its first foray into other media as early as 1962, when Harte Hanks bought KENS-AM-TV, San Antonio's CBS radio and television affiliates, as part of its acquisition of the Express-News. Harte Hanks turned KENS from a perennial ratings also-ran to the market leader by 1968. In the 1970s, the newspaper-dominated company further diversified its holdings by purchasing the WAIM radio and TV stations in Anderson as part of its purchase of the Independent and Mail, as well as television stations in Jacksonville, Florida; Greensboro, North Carolina; and Springfield, Missouri. In 1978, Harte Hanks bought radio stations formerly owned by Southern Broadcasting. In 1980, the company's broadcast holdings were 4 television stations, 11 radio stations, and 4 cable television systems. Industry competitors include QuinStreet, Salesquest, and DigitasLBi. Karen Puckett, President & CEO of Harte Hanks, has a 100% approval rating in Owler.

Harte Hanks's President & CEO, Karen Puckett, currently has an approval rating of 61%. Harte Hanks's primary competitors are  HubSpot Pardot Marketo.
