Who We Are
The Tennessean Media Group is a multi-media company with a suite of advertising and marketing products and services, anchored by The Tennessean and Tennessean.com. With roots in journalism as far back as 1812, the Tennessean Media Group carries on the proud tradition of fulfilling its responsibilities to express "the ideals, and the moral, economic, social and political aspirations of the people."
The Tennessean Media Group remains committed to excellent journalism for our community, including:
- Putting local news first, with the most local coverage available
- Being the premiere source of Watchdog and Investigative journalism
- Providing an understanding of local issues, not just reporting them
And being a leading source of local news means being a leading source of local voices. That includes our local columnists, who each bring their own unique perspective, experience and voice to what happens in our area … whether it’s Gail Kerr asking the tough questions of local leaders, Ms. Cheap showing us how to save money – and who doesn’t want that these days – to David Climer, Cathi Aycock and more.
It also includes providing guest columnists a forum for their opinions on the editorial page, allowing people to post comments on Tennessean.com and other forums for people to be heard.
The Tennessean Media Group is part of the Gannett Corporation.
