About Us

Pilot Media is the Number 1 source of news, information, entertainment and advertising in Southeast Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. Every day, we put news and information in the hands of our readers, empowering them to make their lives better as a 24/7, multi-platform media company. The 147-year-old flagship paper, a Pulitzer-prize-winning metro serving more than 330,000 readers a day, has been named "best paper in the state of Virginia" for 27 of the past 33 years. We launched one of the first newspaper websites in the country and have grown that audience to more than 100,000 daily visitors.

Our diverse, multimedia portfolio includes the commonwealth's best daily newspaper, the region's most visited websites, an events company and multiple weekly and monthly print publications.

As an employer, we value innovation and collaboration across a diverse workforce, driving us to compete to win in a dynamic, fast-paced environment. Located in Norfolk, VA, we employ more than 800 people.

As a good corporate citizen, we champion causes that make people's lives better with our money, our reach and our time as a company and as individual volunteers. We sponsor several youth-focused projects during the year, including The Joy Fund, Scholastic Achievement and the Spelling Bee.
