About Kansas.com

Kansas.com is the Web site of The Wichita Eagle, the largest newspaper in Kansas, serving Wichita, the largest city in Kansas, and the surrounding area.

The predecessor of Kansas.com, WichitaOnline, was launched on Nov. 18, 1996, carrying a selection of news from The Wichita Eagle. In November 1999, Kansas.com was launched as a regional information portal, running parallel to WichitaOnline, which continued to serve up news from The Eagle. Over time, the two sites converged until WichitaOnline was quietly retired in favor of Kansas.com.

Today, Kansas.com reaches, on average, more than 1.1 million unique visitors who view more than 10.7 million pages on the site each month. That makes it the leading local information Web site in Kansas, and the preferred medium for businesses trying to reach local consumers online. Combined, The Wichita Eagle and Kansas.com reach eight out of 10 Wichita-area adults every week.

The Wichita Eagle is owned by McClatchy, one of the nation’s leading media companies, headquartered in Sacramento, California.
