Cox Media Group, Inc. Key Developments

DISH Network Reaches Deal for WHIO Service

DISH Network reached agreement on a new contract with the parent company of WHIO-TV Channel 7 and granted a short contract extension to the parent company of WDTN-TV Channel 2 - avoiding a blackout locally for both that DISH had threatened when its contracts with the stations expired. At issue were the fees TV stations charge cable and satellite operators to carry their programming. The deals are renegotiated on a regular basis but usually without any disruption in service. Without the contracts, DISH is not permitted to broadcast the local stations. The negotiations affected stations all over the country and were over DISH service for the stations operated by Cox Media Group, the parent company of WHIO-TV, as well as Media General, the parent company of WDTN-TV.

Cox Media Group Cuts 27 Jobs

Cox Media Group announced that it is eliminating 27 jobs, most of them in Dayton, as it contracts with another media company for copy editing and design. The company's shared services division announced it would contract with a number of vendors, including Gatehouse Media which recently purchased the Columbus Dispatch, for some copy editing and design functions. Gatehouse, the company said, currently does design and copy editing for Cox's weekly newspapers in Texas and southwest Ohio. This will mean the 27 shared services editing positions will be cut over the next four months. Of them 21 are at the Dayton-based copy desk and another six are based in West Palm Beach, Fla. The company says the changes don't impact staffing for its Cox Media Group Ohio division, the specific division which owns Dayton Daily News and WHIO-TV.

Monster and The Local Media Consortium Renew Alliance for Recruitment Services

Monster and the Local Media Consortium announced the renewal of their alliance to distribute local recruitment content, job ads, career services and talent management solutions as pioneered by Monster through a growing nationwide alliance of local media outlets, including Cox Media Group, Digital First Media, Gatehouse Media, Journal Media Group, Lee Enterprises, and many others. The agreement, which represents 745 local papers and over 20 media companies, extends the original relationship forged in 2011 for an additional three years, and retains all current LMC/Monster newspaper alliance partners. Monster and the Local Media Consortium will continue their strategic agreement and engage across the ever-growing network of local outlets that serve hundreds of municipalities and regions across the United States.
