Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
     On January 30, 2008, the information in the next paragraph regarding the Company was included in a presentation at an investor conference in New York, New York. A press release was issued the same day. (On January 22, 2008, Belo Corp. issued a press release (a) announcing the January 30, 2008 investor conference in New York, New York, and (b) including instructions as to when and how to access the presentation and the location on Belo Corp.’s Web site where the information is available. The information is also available on the Company’s Web site at www.ahbelo.com/invest.)
     The Company’s total revenues decreased approximately 9.7 percent in 2007 and approximately 11.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to the prior year and prior year quarter, respectively. Total newspaper advertising revenues were down approximately 10.9 percent in 2007 and approximately 13.7 percent in the fourth quarter. The fourth quarter of 2006 had one more Sunday than the fourth quarter of 2007. Adjusting for the additional Sunday, total advertising revenues were down approximately 12 percent in the fourth quarter of 2007. Advertising revenues associated with the Company’s Web sites increased approximately 19.5 percent in 2007 and approximately 15.4 percent in the fourth quarter. Subject to economic conditions and related advertiser responses to consumer spending patterns, the Company expects newspaper advertising revenues to decrease in 2008 but not at the levels experienced in 2007, with decreases at The Providence Journal and The Press-Enterprise expected to be more substantial than at The Dallas Morning News.
