To the traditional print journals that have already been suggested, I would

Journal of Film and Video (UFVA)
Critical Studies in Mass Communication (NCA)
Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media (BEA)

And I'd like to pose a related question:

Have any online-only journals been able to establish a serious academic rep

E.g., Postmodern Culture (which, of course, is not just a media studies
journal) has been around since 1990.  Have academics found it useful
getting jobs, promotions, and/or tenure?
