Kagan Launches Free e-Newsletter, Hires Marich as Editor

MONTEREY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 15, 2005 -- Kagan Research announced today the launch of a free email newsletter service -- Kagan INSIGHTS -- written for media industry leaders, planners and investors.

Kagan INSIGHTS presents timely coverage of media and entertainment industry news; authoritative views on business trends and events; and exclusive Kagan data on advertising, cable, satellite and broadcast TV, digital TV, radio, motion pictures, media and entertainment finance and law, video games, radio, telecom, broadband, Internet, sports and wireless media technology.

Business journalist Robert Marich, who has a quarter century experience in Kagan's business sectors, is editor of INSIGHTS and writes from Kagan's new office in New York City. "The media and entertainment sectors are converging, fragmenting, expanding and consolidating before our eyes," says Marich. "INSIGHTS attempts to make sense of the overwhelming flood of information on wireless broadband, the Internet explosion and other emerging technology developments, and provides independent, unbiased analysis of where media technology trends are leading."

Marich is author of the theatrical distribution handbook "Marketing to Moviegoers," published in April 2005 by Focal Press. He served as editor of a London-based movie newsletter and his articles have been published in the Los Angeles Times, Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Advertising Age and Investor's Business Daily.

"Robert Marich's news experience and instincts combined with our analysts' perspectives across a wide spectrum of media and communications sectors will help Kagan deliver a continuous stream of useful knowledge to readers of INSIGHTS," says Tim Baskerville, President of Kagan Research, LLC.

Kagan INSIGHTS is free to qualified industry professionals via a signup on the company's website at Subscribers may select areas of interest and will receive issues related to the topics they choose.
