Exhibit 3
Description:
STATEMENT REGARDING OWNERSHIP

BECAUSE NONE OF THE OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS OF JOURNAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC. ('JCI'), OTHER THAN DAVID G. MEISSNER AS DETAILED BELOW, INDIVIDUALLY HOLDS AN INTEREST OF FIVE PERCENT OR MORE, THE PERCENTAGE OF VOTES AND PERCENTAGE OF TOTAL ASSETS PROVIDED IN SECTION II, QUESTION 9(A), LINES 7 AND 8, FOR THE OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS HAS BEEN LISTED AS ZERO FOR ADMINISTRATIVE CONVENIENCE.

JCI HAS THREE CLASSES OF STOCK: CLASS A, CLASS B AND CLASS C COMMON STOCK. CLASS A SHARES ARE TRADED ON THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE ('NYSE').

CLASS B AND CLASS C SHARES ARE NOT TRADED ON THE NYSE.

NO PARTY HOLDS SHARES REPRESENTING FIVE PERCENT OR MORE OF THE VOTES OF JCI, NOR IS ANY PARTY ATTRIBUTABLE PURSUANT TO THE COMMISSIONS EQUITY DEBT PLUS POLICY, OTHER THAN (1) THE JUDITH ABERT MEISSNER MARITAL TRUST (THE 'MEISSNER TRUST'), WHICH HOLDS 7.65% OF THE VOTES OF JCI AND (2) DAVID G. MEISSNER, WHO BENEFICIALLY HOLDS 8.7% OF THE VOTES OF JCI. MR. MEISSNER IS A BENEFICIARY AND TRUSTEE OF THE MEISSNER TRUST. CONSEQUENTLY, THE SHARES HELD BY THE MEISSNER TRUST ARE ALSO REFLECTED IN MR. MEISSNERS HOLDINGS. MR. MEISSNER IS ALSO A DIRECTOR OF JBI.

THE 2007 OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN SUPERSEDES THE JOURNAL COMPANY 2003 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN, REFERENCED IN PREVIOUSLY-FILED OWNERSHIP REPORTS, EXCEPT THAT THE 2003 PLAN STILL GOVERNS CERTAIN GRANTS MADE UNDER THAT PLAN. BOTH THE JOURNAL COMPANY 2003 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN AND THE JOURNAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC. 2007 OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN ARE ON FILE WITH, AND ARE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE FROM, THE SEC.
