Introducing Mediagazer

March 8, 2010

Mediagazer presents the day’s must-read media news on a single page.

The media business is in tumult: from the production side to the distribution side, new technologies are upending the industry. What do news organizations need to do to survive? Will books become extinct? When will an audience pay for content? Can video bring television and the internet together? Will the iPad save us all? Keeping up with these changes is time-consuming, as essential media coverage is scattered across numerous web sites at any given moment.

Mediagazer simplifies this task by organizing the key coverage in one place. We’ve combined sophisticated automated aggregation technologies with direct editorial input from knowledgeable human editors to present the one indispensible narrative of an industry in transition. We collect relevant takes on an issue and package them together in a comprehensive group of links. That way, you not only get the lead opinion on an issue, but you can easily find the supporting, opposing, smart, controversial, notable, and previously unseen viewpoints. You get the big picture.

We make it easy for you to get your media news fix. If you want to share the latest media news with your Facebook friends or Twitter followers, you can use the easy “share” button next to the headline title. (See more here.) If you’re on the go, you can easily access Mediagazer on your smartphone by viewing mediagazer.com/m in your mobile browser, though mediagazer.com will redirect there on iPhone and Android devices. If you have a simpler phone, mediagazer.com/mini will bring you the same information in a simpler display.

Mediagazer is brought to you by the same people behind Techmeme, the leading aggregator of computer and internet industry news and analysis. We are a self-funded and independent company. Mediagazer earns revenue through the support of sponsors, and we are proud to announce the companies who are with us from Day 1: WordPress, Tynt, Seesmic, Smash Summit, and Zemanta.

So, welcome to Mediagazer! Stay a bit, poke around a little, feel free to explore the site. Please direct any general questions about the site to questionsorcomments@mediagazer.com, any editorial questions to editorial@mediagazer.com, and sponsorship inquiries to sponsor@mediagazer.com (or check out mediagazer.com/sponsor). In one last note, we would love to thank our talented designer Kristin Nienhuis for all of her input and work on this site. You can contact her and see more of her portfolio at her personal site.

    So is there (or will there be) an option to “Tip @mediagazer”?

    Great looking site.. Interesting articles as well

    Great initiative! How do you determine if something is media news? Is it based on the source, or the actual content of the article? Also, can we suggest sources?

    Surely ‘MediaGrazer?’ I like it, the look and feels seems very similar to PaidContent.org, which covers the same space.

    I been impressed…then I a Betty White & SNL story came across my RSS feed from your site. Really? That hardly qualifies as “must read media news.” Please, oh please, don’t become a patsy for media outlets to promote themselves. The media industry will be no better or worse on account of Betty White’s appearance on SNL. I personally would prefer the focus be on quality/applicability of your content rather than anything and everything that has some tie to the media industry.
