Editor’s Note: A New Era at TVSpy

Today is my last day as editor of the TV news industry’s longest running blog. I’m leaving to join BuzzFeed, where I’ll oversee video production for their expanding empire. Merrill Knox, an editor here for the past year and a half who has a deep knowledge of the TV business, is taking the reins.

Since Merrill joined the TVSpy team, traffic for the site has doubled and the amount of raw reporting has increased significantly. Joining Merrill in covering local TV news at Mediabistro will be the team at Lost Remote, the influential social TV blog acquired by our parent company earlier this week.

When I first began working at TVSpy, the local TV business was reeling from a prolonged recession and the future looked bleak. Now, with staffing at local stations way up, there is a new energy coursing through the industry. And you can be certain that TVSpy, as it has done for decades, will be there to cover all of the future developments.

Lost Remote Joining Mediabistro Team

WebMediaBrands, the parent company of Mediabistro and TVSpy, has acquired the popular social TV blog Lost Remote.

Cory Bergman, who founded Lost Remote 13 years ago, will continue to play an active role in the site, as will longtime contributor Natan Edelsburg.

“This is an exciting new chapter for Lost Remote,” Bergman said. “Few people had heard of social TV two years ago, 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.”  Read more at Lost Remote
