Media General Inc. Chairman Bryan Dies at 77

Sunday, 24 Jan 2016 11:42 AM

Media General Inc. Chairman John Stewart Bryan III, the former publisher of the Richmond Times-Dispatch, has died. He was 77.

The fourth and final generation of his family to work in the media business, Bryan died Saturday, according Paige Mudd, editor of The Times-Dispatch. He had suffered a fall at his home on Jan. 15 and had been hospitalized since then.

Bryan's death comes amid a bidding contest between Nexstar Broadcasting Group Inc. of Texas and Iowa's Meredith Corp. to merge with Media General.

From 1978 to 2004, Bryan served as publisher of The Times-Dispatch. His great-grandfather acquired the newspaper in 1887 and his father served as publisher for more than three decades.

Bryan took control of Media General in 1990.
