TVGM, LLC Launches TV Insider

The Premiere Digital Destination for Television Enthusiasts

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 23, 2015) - TVGM, LLC has announced TV Insider, a new website for TV enthusiasts (TVInsider.com). A sharp and savvy guide to what's worth watching, TV Insider provides television fans with an all-access pass to their favorite programming. TV Insider is published by TVGM, LLC, the publishing division of the private investment firm OpenGate Capital. The multi-platform media company is also the parent company of TV Guide Magazine, the 62-year-old iconic print magazine.

TV Insider is a trustworthy new voice in the television landscape, with a staff led by TVGM Editor in Chief Doug Brod and newly hired TV Insider Digital Director Robin A. Rothman. Rothman, who has held editorial positions at Amazon and MTV.com, leads the technical and content development of the site, building a dedicated digital staff and working closely with Brod to leverage TVGM's incomparable pool of well-known television authorities. TV Insider coverage is focused on giving television viewers expert recommendations about what's worth watching as well as providing breaking news. Exclusive photos and videos offer visitors a unique look at characters and fascinating, behind-the-scenes details on their favorite shows. Curated playlists highlight thematic content in fresh new ways. The popular "Ask Matt" column by TV Guide Magazine Senior Critic Matt Roush is among the most anticipated features on the site. TV Insider has also partnered with respected industry reporter Norman Weiss, whose "TV Tattle" blog provides the most comprehensive roundup of breaking TV news found anywhere.

"With the launch of TV Insider, our new and ever-expanding digital home for What's Worth Watching, TVGM can develop fully as a multi-platform media company," says David J. Fishman, CEO of TVGM. "TV Insider is a great and logical addition to our growing suite of TV-powered media properties. As we enter this exciting new Golden Age of high-quality television, all of us at TVGM are committed to best serving our growing audience of engaged and influential television enthusiasts -- and the marketers who seek to reach them in a meaningful way."

The TV Insider site went live via a public Beta on January 26. With marketing and cross-promotional efforts only now beginning, TV Insider's traffic has evolved organically, thanks to its superior content and the established social-media presence of its contributors.

Already, TV Insider has broken news stories that have been referenced with due credit by several high-profile news and entertainment outlets, including Entertainment Weekly, The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, Nerdist, NME, Salon, Soapzone, Variety, and Vulture. The website has surpassed its initial goal of more than 285,000 unique users in under two months, with over 900,000 page views and 480,000 sessions to date. The median user's age range is 25-34, the set most coveted by advertisers.

"We are thrilled that TV Insider has already made its mark in the entertainment news space and have great expectations for its growth," says TVGM's Brod. "And in this age of recommendations via algorithms, we pride ourselves on delivering human-powered programming guidance by names you can trust."
