Virginia Business Magazine, one of the state's older business publications and most recently a property of Media General, has been sold, according to a post on its Web site. Virginia Business is the state's only statewide business publication and is more of a traditional business magazine than our Valley Business FRONT (which tries to be both informative and interesting; VB has not mastered the latter part of that equation).
Here's what the Web report says:
"Virginia Business Magazine, published by Media General Inc., has been sold to Virginia Business Publications LLC, a Virginia-based investment company that will include Bernard A. Niemeier, the magazine’s president and publisher ... No terms were released. Virginia Business, a statewide business news monthly that covers major industries and business trends, has published for nearly 24 years."
