I'm speaking in terms of newspapers, local magazines, radio, television, or even local web-media firms.. I'm a new graduate in mass communications; I'm looking to relocate to a warmer climate (from Michigan), so I was just wondering what the media scene looked like out this way, if it was worth looking into.

I'd say it's not worth looking into, the business and communication markets are highly saturated with recent grads down here. I'd try Miami or Tampa, somewhere with higher populations with more media outlets.

My cousin was a broadcast journalist for a local news station and his wife was a news anchor. Both award-winning and highly respected, both with almost 10 years experience, and both with 6 years experience in the Ft Myers area. Both of them were let go in 2012 when their contracts were up due to downsizing. I will let you draw your own conclusions.

It's more of a mini-news-market than a market. There are so few local stories of "interest" like in larger cities--murders, roaring fires, massive wrecks--that most they usually just re-hash the national news on TV during the local hour. The local paper isn't much better. I'm not complaining, in fact I enjoy the lack of "news", but I certainly wouldn't look here for a the type of job you are interested in.
