The Future of Media: 2010 panel discussion

i-want-media-panel-2

I am really excited to share that I will be speaking on a panel taking place at NYU on June 8th during Internet Week with pretty good company — Dan Abrams, Arianna Huffington and some other great folks. It is put together by Patrick Phillips of I Want Media, and if you are thinking of attending my first public appearance (yes, that sounds funny to my ears as well), I would act soon as seating is very limited.

Taking BGR to the next level — MMC acquires BGR

Taking BGR to the next level — MMC acquires BGR

I wanted to share some amazing news with you all.

I am happy to report that BGR has been acquired by MMC. Moving forward, CEO of MMC Jay Penske and I are partners on BGR, and I couldn’t be happier. This will allow BGR to grow enormously. From a more comprehensive and diverse editorial staff — all the way to the relaunching of BGR as BGR.com with new features and functionality, the site will advance dramatically and continue our mission: to break the biggest stories in this category possible. I am the President, Editor-in-Chief, and General Manager of BGR, and will continue to run the business as well as the editorial aspects of the site — nothing will change there.

BGR was started by myself, Jonathan Geller, a little more than four years ago. In that time, it has grown from just a small passion project into a profitable, dominant online business that is ranked with some of the biggest sites on the web.  As I write this, BGR is, according to Technorati, ranked #49 out of every single site in the world. When I think back about how this was accomplished, and how with just a few great writers, and practically no infrastructure, we built something pretty mind blowing… I can’t wait to hit #1.

Thank you for making BGR your daily go-to for the latest mobile and gadget news, we will have more information over the coming weeks on what we are working on to make BGR better than ever. Press release is after the break!
