Gawker Grabs $2 Million in Revenue in One Day

Gawker Media boss Nick Denton just had the pleasure of sending out what must have been one of the most delightful memos to write in all his years. According to Denton, on Tuesday Gawker made $2 million in revenue, which is pretty damn impressive.

Denton also has Kate Middleton’s boobs and that fancy iPhone thing to thank for things going great. “Kate Middleton, iPhone and our excellent coverage of those and other stories drew 39.1m readers in the last month,” Denton explained in the note. “22.6m of them from our main market, the US. That’s a record.”

For the full memo from Denton, head over to Jim Romenesko’s site.
