Alex Meruelo to Nominate Independent Director Slate at Digital Generation's
Annual Meeting

Proposes to Expand Board to Enhance Independence and Maximize Value for
Stockholders

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alex Meruelo, together with
Meruelo Investment Partners LLC, today issued the following statement
regarding Digital Generation, Inc. (Nasdaq:DGIT) (the "Company"):

We intend to conduct a proxy solicitation in connection with the upcoming
annual meeting of stockholders of the Company to ensure that the interests of
the stockholders, the true owners of the Company, are adequately represented
in the Company's boardroom.

To achieve this goal, we are seeking stockholder support to elect a slate of
four independent director candidates nominated by us and approve proposals
submitted by us, including a proposal to amend the Company's bylaws to expand
the size of the Company's Board of Directors from eight to eleven total
directors.

In addition to our independent nominees, we intend to solicit proxies to elect
all of the Board's nominees other than David M. Kantor, the incumbent director
whose term expires this year. This gives stockholders who wish to vote for all
four of our independent nominees the ability to vote for a total of six
independent nominees, including the two independent nominees recently proposed
by the Clinton Group, another large stockholder of the Company.

If we are successful, one of our independent nominees will be elected to
replace the incumbent director up for re-election this year and our remaining
three independent nominees will be elected to fill the three newly created
directorships that would result from our proposed expansion of the Board from
eight to eleven total directors.

We have lost confidence in the Company's incumbent directors. We do not
believe the incumbent directors are acting in the best interests of the
stockholders of the Company. As the largest stockholder of the Company, we
continue to be disappointed by the disturbing lack of transparency and
communication surrounding the Company's existing strategic alternatives
process and other board and leadership failures, which we believe have
contributed to the Company's lack of performance.

We believe that stockholders are entitled to have a board that will,
consistent with its fiduciary duties, exercise independent judgment and
promptly explore all alternatives for maximizing stockholder value. We urge
you to send a strong message to the Company that you want a board that will
act in your best interests. We believe that the best way to send that message
is by voting to elect our independent nominees and in favor of our other
proposals.

Additional information regarding our nominees and proposals will be provided
in a proxy statement and other soliciting materials filed with the SEC.
