Cox Media Group on Friday announced four new members of its leadership team in Atlanta who will direct a plan to knit together its local print, web, radio and television operations.
In Atlanta, CMG owns The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and radio and television properties, including WSB-TV and News 95.5 and AM 750 WSB radio. By combining operations of its media operations, CMG plans to leverage its top-rated role in print, online publishing, radio news, television news and music programming, CMG Executive Vice President Jane Williams said.
Moya Neville is CMG Atlanta’s new vice president of sales. She will oversee advertising sales for all of Cox Media’s platforms in the metro area. Neville is a veteran of CMG and cable and broadband company Cox Communications.
Donna Hall is the new vice president of marketing and will oversee CMG’s marketing operations as well as the programming of Atlanta and Athens-area music stations. Hall previously worked in Dayton, Ohio, and helped direct the blending of newspaper, radio and television operations for CMG there.
Mark Medici is the new vice president of audience and newspaper operations. He will manage distribution of print and online content, including premium, subscriber-only content.
Paul Briggs, a veteran television executive, is the new vice president of content and broadcast operations. In this role, Briggs will steer news and content production across print, radio and television.
Earlier this year, the company announced plans to integrate the operations of its media holdings across broadcast, online and print. Last month, CMG announced that it plans to sell its newspapers in Florida and Texas as it focuses on its core markets in Dayton, Ohio, and Atlanta.
“Integrating CMG Atlanta is part of the company’s multi-faceted strategy to position us for future growth and success,” Williams said in a news release. “With our integrated media approach, we have a unique opportunity in CMG’s flagship market where we offer our audiences unparalleled award-winning content, our customers comprehensive strategic business solutions, and our employees unrivaled cross-platform career opportunities.”
