Gannett chooses Cozi for new online service


Gannett and Cozi Group announced a strategic partnership to offer localized editions of Cozi’s popular organizational software for families in Gannett markets across the US. Cozi ( is a free online service that helps families manage, coordinate and, as a result, enjoy their ever-busier lives. Gannett is offering local, co-branded versions of the Cozi service in Gannett markets this spring.

Gannett’s local affiliates will offer readers an online service that will enable families to manage busy schedules through a central family calendar, track shopping and to-do lists, share information, and stay in communication. The co-branded service will incorporate local content, information, and schedules from Gannett’s newspapers and Web sites to help families more easily manage calendars and plan activities. In turn, Cozi will increase its national footprint through Gannett’s network of daily newspapers, regional publications, TV stations and local websites.

The partnership will kick-off with a launch of the co-branded Cozi online service in three markets beginning in April, including Westchester, N.Y. (The Journal News), Salem, Ore. (Statesman Journal), and Des Moines, Iowa (The Des Moines Register).
