Adweek Launches Blog Network With Redesigned Mediabistro Sites

TVNewser, TVSpy, LostRemote, and PRNewser among Mediabistro sites folded into new network

Five months after Adweek and Mediabistro joined forces, Adweek has launched the Adweek Blog Network, featuring nine former Mediabistro blogs.

Popular sites like TVNewser — which was created by CNN’s Brian Stelter as Cablenewser.com and has been covering TV news for 11 years — have been redesigned as part of the new Adweek Blog Network.

“2014 was a very successful year for our business, highlighted by the acquisition of Mediabistro. Establishing the ABN in 2015 is the next step in our evolution, allowing their voice to complement Adweek’s editorial expertise and leadership,” said Jeffrey Wilbur, President of Mediabistro Holdings.

“This transition also allows Mediabistro an opportunity to expand upon core offerings in professional development and recruitment services for media professionals.”

Other sites part of the new network include TVSpy, which covers all things local TV news; PRNewser, an insider site covering the pubic relations industry; social-TV site Lost Remote; advertising-insider AgencySpy; D.C. media/politics insider FishbowlDC; New York media site FishbowlNY; publishing-industry site GalleyCat; and SocialTimes, which covers multiple facets of social media.
