Cox Media Group CEO Kim Guthrie Leaving
Cox Media Group said today that Kim Guthrie, president and chief executive officer, has decided to move on from the organization after a 22-plus year career with the company.
Steve Pruett, CMG executive chairman, will serve as the interim chief executive officer until a permanent chief executive officer is appointed soon. Pruett said: “On behalf of the board of directors, we would like to thank Kim for her decades of service to Cox Media Group and her leadership during the company’s transition to new ownership. She has been instrumental in positioning CMG for future success as an industry-leading media company.” The company said Guthrie will work with Pruett on an orderly transition.
Guthrie said: “We have built a strong foundation for future growth, including an exceptional senior management team, a successful carveout from Cox Enterprises, and deep, long-term relationships with our communities, customers and partners. I have full confidence in this great team at CMG and I look forward to watching CMG’s future achievements.”
