Terry Jamerson, publisher of The Roanoke (Virginia) Times and a regional vice president of parent company BH Media Group, announced Monday that she is retiring.
Jamerson’s newspaper career spanned four decades. She held senior leadership roles with several media companies, including Worrell Enterprises, Media General and BH Media Group.
Jamerson was named publisher of The Roanoke Times in 2013 when BH Media purchased the newspaper from Landmark Communications of Norfolk. In addition to Roanoke, she directed BH Media’s Virginia Community Group, comprised of daily and weekly newspapers in many parts of state including Bristol, Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Waynesboro, Danville and Martinsville. She also served on the board of directors of the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association.
John Jordan, BH Media’s vice president of digital and sales, will oversee the Virginia Community Group and The Roanoke Times on an interim basis. Jordan has been with the company since 2018. Jamerson will assist with the transition.
