Complex Media

Producer, Complex NEWS

Complex NEWS was built with the core belief a young global audience wants a face and a voice presenting relevant news and ideas with personality, without punditry, and in a timely, coherent, and dynamic package. Launching on December 2, 2013, and featuring fast-break dispatches, longform reporting, and interviews with the key figures of today's culture and lifestyle stories, Complex News has so far been proven correct in that belief. As the news channel outpost of Complex TV, cNews currently releases up to 12 segments a day and counting. From New York to Austin to LA and beyond, Complex News covers stories both globally and locally, in categories covering fifteen different culture and lifestyle verticals that range from music, to style, technology, film, TV, food, sports, politics, and beyond. And as for results? Millions of unique, real visitors each month viewing and interacting with our stories, and our interviews (subjects have ranged from Snoop Dogg to Wall Street reporters and back). We're being syndicated by our contemporaries as an authoritative source. And we've developed not just a new platform for Complex, and the stories it tells, but a new brand, as well: At Complex News, we capture the voice of the youth culture conversation—and those actors and participants in it—and all of the stories that drive it.
