    I have no clue what this means on the business side of things, given MG's latest stock numbers.

    It's simply to use the sales to pay off some debt. If I recall correctly, Moddy, MG doesn't own print publications in either market. Therefore, no "convergence," no "clustering" and no way to save a few pennies.

    My Media General shop is renovating the breakroom. I'm so proud.

    WMBB in Panama City was allegedly clustered with the Jackson County Floridan (6500 subscribers strong baby!) 45 minutes up the road. I think they built a small studio in the newsroom after I left so the bureau reporter could do her 30 second piece on the inland Panhandle meth bust of the day, but I doubt anything more ever came of it.
