Media General produces good journalism, but the company was not prepared for the digital age.

Digital Media (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA

I worked at Media General full-time for more than 10 years

ProsMedia General continues to be a good place to develop young talent among reporters and producers.

ConsThere is no financial strategy for company web sites, so Media General depends on seasonal events like political campaigns and the Olympics as revenue generators.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease develop a digital strategy to take advantage of the growth opportunities that exist in that medium.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
