“It’s a bittersweet day for Media General to complete the sale of its last remaining newspaper group,” said Marshall N. Morton, president and chief executive officer. “The Tampa Tribune was our largest and second oldest newspaper. Many Tribune employees have decades of service. The Tribune staff has been extraordinarily dedicated to providing their readers with excellent journalism, creating value for their advertisers and supporting the local community. We are pleased that they will have the opportunity for continued future success serving the Tampa community with excellent local content. We will miss our colleagues at The Tribune and its associated print and digital platforms, and we wish them the very best,” said Mr. Morton.
Robert Loring, founder and managing partner of Revolution Capital Group, said, “We are delighted to be the new owner of The Tampa Tribune, a newspaper with strong brand equity and a long history of serving its readers, advertisers and community exceedingly well. We believe strongly in the value of local content.”
