AL.com’s Cindy Martin on Changes to Birmingham News
al.com’s President on Changes at Birmingham News
Come this fall, Birmingham will not have a daily print newspaper. Publisher Advance Publications has announced it’s scaling back to three-day-a-week print papers for the Birmingham News, the Huntsville Times, and Mobile Press Register. Moving forward, one new company will handle all human resources, finance, printing and distribution for the newspapers and another new company, Alabama Media Group, will focus on content, marketing and serving advertisers. Their focus will be digital. WBHM’s Tanya Ott talks with the woman tapped to lead that new company: al.com President and CEO Cindy Martin.
