MEDIA GENERAL INC. FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS INCREASE

 MEDIA GENERAL INC. FIRST QUARTER EARNINGS INCREASE
 RICHMOND, Va., April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Media General Inc.


(AMEX: MEG.A) today reported that first quarter 1992 net income increased 15 percent to $2.7 million, or $0.11 per share, from first quarter 1991 net income of $2.4 million, or $0.09 per share.
 Revenues for the 1992 first quarter were $141.7 million, compared with revenues of $145.6 million for the year earlier period.
 The Company said first quarter 1992 net income benefitted principally from improved earnings at its daily newspapers, continued strength at its cable television systems, and stringent cost controls throughout the corporation.
 Newsprint revenues and profits for the quarter were down sharply from the prior year period, reflecting the continuing oversupply and weak demand which has resulted in industry-wide deep price discounting.
 Media General said its broadcast television stations have yet to realize any significant strengthening in advertising revenues which typically accompany an improved economy.
