Alex Meruelo Announces Intention to Nominate Directors for Election to Digital
Generation's Board

Questions Strategic Alternatives Process and Calls for Updated, Improved
Disclosures

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alex Meruelo today issued the
following statement regarding Digital Generation, Inc. (Nasdaq:DGIT):

I am Digital Generation's largest shareholder. Meruelo Investment Partners LLC
and I are committed to the Company's success and maximizing value for all
shareholders, including through the consummation (via the Company's existing
strategic alternatives process or otherwise) of a timely sale of the Company
or any other strategic alternative that is in the best interests of
shareholders.

Although we value our relationship with Digital Generation and have supported
the Company's existing strategic alternatives process, we have serious
concerns about the process and the ability and willingness of management of
the Company to act in the best interests of all shareholders.We have been
disappointed by the lack of communication and transparency and have become
increasingly concerned about the timing and credibility of the process.We
also have significant doubts as to whether the process can be reasonably
expected to maximize value for all shareholders.We believe that many of our
fellow shareholders share these concerns.

We intend to call upon Digital Generation to promptly address these concerns
and satisfy its reporting and disclosure obligations, including by completing
the Company's strategic alternatives process in a timely manner and providing
shareholders with meaningful updates and information regarding the status of
the process until it is completed.We believe that it is reasonable to expect
the Company to complete the process this year.We plan to ask the Company to
announce the resolution of the process or, if the process is not yet then
complete, provide shareholders with a substantive update regarding the status
and expected timing and resolution of the process, in either case, no later
than November 30, 2012.

We intend also to nominate independent directors for election to Digital
Generation's board at the next annual or special meeting at which shareholders
are asked to act upon the election of directors.We believe that the addition
of our nominees will enhance the independence of the board, oversight of
management, and the Company's other short-term and long-term corporate
governance functions, including with respect to the completion of the
Company's existing strategic alternatives process, as necessary, and any such
future process, if the existing process fails to produce a strategic
alternative that is in the best interests of shareholders.

We may suggest, recommend, propose, participate in, or otherwise pursue or
seek to influence transactions involving the acquisition, sale, or exchange of
all or part of the Company's securities or assets (or other actions relating
to, or potentially resulting in, changes to the Company's business, condition,
operations, structure, governance, management, capitalization, policies,
plans, and prospects and other actions and changes), including by: making
shareholder proposals or supporting the nominees or proposals of others;
calling a special meeting of shareholders; and commencing a tender offer or
tendering shares into a third-party tender offer.
