NOLA Media Group and Alabama Media Group, two media companies owned by Advance Local, will join a new regional company for the Southeast, NOLA.com reported Monday.Probably a way to move sales and customer service into one office and fire a bunch of people in the process. But it's okay because we know what happens next is they all create their own start-ups and NOLA.com will feature them in the next "Entrepreneur Week." So really this is all about growing the local economy.
The Southeast Regional Media Group, a company slated to launch later this year, will encompass properties from NOLA Media Group — which includes The Times-Picayune and NOLA.com — and from Alabama Media Group, which oversees The Birmingham News, The (Mobile, Alabama) Press-Register and The Huntsville Times, according to NOLA.com.
