A new opportunity

image001I’m a bit late in announcing the fact that I’ve accepted a fabulous opportunity to work with the Alabama Media Group’s PubHub.

Yes, they are the Advance Newspaper group that successfully moved from a daily publishing cycle to three days each week (Wednesday, Friday, Sunday.) And for the record, they do a lot more than the daily paper.

The deciding factor for me was the structure of the operation and the quality and attitude of the staff.

As director of Gannett’s Nashville hub I experienced the concept firsthand and was able to see and learn about others (Scripps, Hearst, Tribune, GateHouse, etc.) While no one company has it absolutely perfect, AMG has set up what I believe to be the best version yet and the PubHub is situated to grow and evolve. Considering today’s media landscape, that’s unique.

It’s also wonderful to see great attitudes, friendly people and strong morale, which is often lacking in the media industry.
