I was a reporter for many years at Newsarama. It’s sad for me to see them leave their individual URL. I wish them luck with their new format and hope it is a sign of bigger and better things for the entire comics industry.
A statement from Newsarama…
Newsarama Founder and Editor in Chief Michael Doran said: “There is huge crossover between comics, videogames, film and TV, so Newsarama becoming part of the bigger GamesRadar site makes total sense from a content perspective, as well as giving us a massive boost in terms of audience reach. It means more people will be able to find our content, we’ll be able to deliver better reach for our clients, and thanks to the bigger team and improved support, we’ll be able to expand and improve the way we report and deliver our daily content.”
Sam Loveridge, Global Editor in Chief for GamesRadar, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Newsarama team and their expert content to GR. Michael and his team are experts in their field, and we know our audience love the universes, characters and stories that crossover from comics to wider entertainment. We can’t wait to add in-depth comics reporting to the site and help develop this incredibly exciting channel and content even further.”
Starting Monday, GamesRadar will feature all the best stories from Newsarama’s archive and new content will be delivered daily from the new gamesradar.com/newsarama site.
