PV Media Group Launches BreakingNews.com, Securing Domain Name of Valuable, Highly Searched Term in Online News
November 20, 2008; 09:24 AM
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PV Media Group (http://www.pvmediagroup.com), a leading integrated online marketing company, has entered into a joint venture with Breaking News Network, Inc., securing as a domain name one of the most valuable and highly searched search terms in online news, BreakingNews.com.
“Perhaps the most exciting component of BreakingNews.com is the domain name itself,” PV Media Group CEO Steve Rosenberg says. “Instantly securing a highly trafficked domain name like this, encompassing a term that has become such a significant part of the global vernacular, holds tremendous value for advertisers seeking prime online real estate with guaranteed traffic.”
Rosenberg has named newspaper veteran James McDonald, the company’s VP of corporate sales and development, to serve as president-CEO of the joint venture, which aims to create a unique online social news community.
McDonald has run free daily newspapers in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., where he developed the concept of The Washington Examiner. Overseeing operations, including business and product strategy, McDonald has appointed veteran journalist John Wilpers as editor of BreakingNews.com.
Wilpers joins the new enterprise from his consulting company, which specialized in helping newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times and Miami Herald, integrate blog content into their sites. Earlier, Wilpers served as editor of The Washington Examiner, working with McDonald to conceptualize, plan and launch the paper. He has also served in editorial posts at Boston Metro and The Boston Herald.
“Because of its name and subject matter, BreakingNews.com is well positioned to generate tremendous traffic,” McDonald says. “It will essentially have the social news community field to itself, since traditional media companies have been entirely focused on creating online brand extensions.”
He adds, "BreakingNews.com will be designed to bring about a more informed global news conversation in both open and closed communities. Its posts offer readers coverage from every vantage point. They can also share a variety of unique widgets and tools, including some that we will add soon, that offer greater insight into the news than typical aggregation sites.”
A year in the making, BreakingNews.com will tackle the latest international, national, political, entertainment, sports, business, finance, health, science and technological innovation happenings.
By offering multiple perspectives on significant breaking stories and news events—aggregated from the media, firsthand blog posts, pod- and video-casts, news buzz from around the web, opinion polls and comments—users can make instantly informed decisions based on verified information posted 24/7.
To supplement traditional media links, BreakingNews.com is building a vast network of pre-screened video and print contributors for its website and widgets. The list will be comprised of highly respected freelancers and bloggers, citizen journalists and students from Northwestern University's prestigious Medill School of Journalism, who will provide pod-and video-casts to the site.
As news breaks, PV Media Group’s Prime Visibility, a search engine optimization and pay-per-click company, will utilize its proprietary search engine marketing technology to enable BreakingNews.com to immediately capture paid search words for stories. Additionally, it will take advantage of the millions of monthly searches based on the desire for "breaking news."
Prime Visibility is also launching significant social marketing campaigns on DIGG, del.ico.us, Reddit, stumbleUpon, YouTube Channel of Video Content, MySpace, Facebook, wiki and other micro communities.
Meanwhile, through PV Media Group's online ad networks, AdOn Network and Premium Access Media, BreakingNews.com banners will appear on media and other behaviorally targeted sites focusing on news. They will provide millions of additional impressions, creating brand awareness and traffic.
