Voice Media Group is an American privately held media company headquartered in Denver, Colorado. VMG owns several newspaper publications across the country. These offerings extend across print, mobile and digital marketing.
VMG's current properties include Denver Westword, Phoenix New Times, Houston Press, Dallas Observer, Miami New Times, and Broward New Times, as well as a digital marketing agency V Digital Services.
VMG was founded in September 2012, when Village Voice Media executives Scott Tobias, Christine Brennan and Jeff Mars announced an agreement to purchase Village Voice Media's papers and web properties from their founders. The classified web site Backpage.com was not part of the sale.
VMG launched the digital marketing agency V Digital Services in 2013. VDS works with VMG publications and partners around the country to offer digital marketing solutions including organic SEO, social media management, paid media, web development and programmatic and pay-per-click advertising. V Digital Services made Inc. magazine's “Inc. 500 list” of America's fastest-growing private companies in 2019, 2018 and 2017.
While adding resources to VDS, Voice Media Group has made strategic divestments of some its newspaper properties. On May 6, 2015, VMG announced the sale of Minneapolis City Pages to Star Tribune Media Co. In October 2015, VMG sold the Village Voice in New York City to Pennsylvania newspaper owner Peter Barbey. In October 2017, VMG sold LA Weekly to local owners; the next month, following devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, it announced that the Houston Press would cease print publication and transition to an online-only entity.
Highest paying job titles at VMG Partners include Studio Manager, Sales Manager, and Enterprise Sales Executive
