Publisher announces formation of new MLive Media Group for Michigan
Dan Gaydou, president of the newly formed MLive Media Group, announced the formation of the company this morning to employees of seven newspapers and Mlive.com.
In his video address to employees, Gaydou said: "We are announcing today that we are launching a new company, the MLive Media Group, which will provide all content and sales operations for MLive.com and all our local newspapers in Michigan. This new company will be driven by innovation and community engagement, and dedicated to providing high-quality content in whatever form may be desired - in print, online, or on tablets or mobile devices."
The move affects The Grand Rapids Press, Muskegon Chronicle, Jackson Citizen-Patriot, Kalamazoo Gazette, Flint Journal, Saginaw News, Bay City Times and MLive.com, based in Ann Arbor.
AnnArbor.com also will be included in the new group. Its publication dates and its current operations will not change, and it will retain its current URL and web site.
