MediaTakeOut.com Receives One Million Page Views

Share Article

Popular Black news website MediaTakeOut.com received more than one million page views in one day -- making it one of the most popular Black websites.

Last week MediaTakeOut.com did what many thought was impossible -- it generated more than one million page views in a single day.

MediaTakeOut.com’s founder, Fred Mwangaguhunga, was both excited and vindicated by the latest web statistics. Fred explained, “when we first launched, people kept telling me to cut back on the number of Black news stories because ‘Black people don’t use the internet’ … I knew they were wrong.” And wrong they were. MediaTakeOut.com routinely draws 100,000 visitors daily – an audience comparable to many popular mainstream sites.

The six-month old MediaTakeOut.com’s meteoric rise is largely attributable to its wildly popular exclusives. The exclusives have already been quoted by BET Style, MTV News, The NY Post’s Page Six, and popular radio personalities like Wendy Williams and Tom Joyner.

And Fred Mwangaguhunga tells exactly how MediaTakeOut.com comes up with its exclusives. “Our staff will go to any length to get a story,” he said, “one of our reporters even steaked out the home of a famous athlete’s mistress, waiting 6 hours in the pouring rain.”

Luckily not all of MediaTakeOut.com’s exclusives require such a hands-on approach. According to the founder, “we get 90% of our stories from insiders looking to spill the beans – like hairstylists, bodyguards or bitter ex-girlfriends.”
