“For more than 20 years, World of Wonder has created programming and experiences that give a voice to the outsiders and the marginalized,” said Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, co-founders of World of Wonder. “As the marginal moves into the mainstream, the time has come for us to curate a platform for our audience with content fans will devour, featuring stars that deserve to be on television round-the-clock.”
“As early adopters in digital, World of Wonder’s primary goal was, and continues to be, to reach our audiences where they are,” the duo continued. “Our owned and operated digital platforms have earned millions of fans by creating disruptive content for a new tribe of viewers. WOW Presents Plus is the next step in our ongoing mission to offer fans a 360-degree experience across live events, linear and digital programming.”
