Mediabistro Adds Lost Remote to Blog Lineup

WebMediaBrands has sealed the deal on another blog acquisition. Lost Remote will be joining the mediabistro blog network.

“Combining Lost Remote with our other social media properties, as well as TVNewser and TVSpy, certainly solidifies our position as the leading blog network covering all aspects of television and cable news and analysis,” said our CEO Alan M. Meckler.

Started 13 years ago, Lost Remote was one of the first blogs to cover the evolution of the TV industry — in fact, it was one of the first blogs, period. Lost Remote has evolved over the years and now covers the fast-growing business of Social TV.

Founder Cory Bergman stays on as editor and Natan Edelsburg as lead writer. As we grow the site, we’ll also be looking to produce our first trade show in the social TV space.

“Few people had heard of social TV two years ago,” says Bergman, “but today it’s driving more innovation in television than we’ve seen in the last decade. WebMediaBrands will leverage its network, resources, and expertise to help take Lost Remote to the next level at an incredible time in the business.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
