Knight Ridder chairman and chief executive Tony Ridder (pictured) will get $9.4 million in severance when his company is sold to McClatchy, rather than the $7.28 million previously reported. That’s according to Michelle Leder of, who translated a McClatchy SEC filing, and the San Jose Business Journal. Severance for other top KR execs: Hilary Schneider, $4.5 million; Steven Rossi, $4.4 million; Art Brisbane, $4.4 million and Mary Jean Connors, $4.3 million.
