Share Article

The move will bolster Gateway Media’s existing coverage of the entertainment industry and make it one of the world’s largest providers of movie and television news and related content.

Gateway Media announced today that it has acquired CinemaBlend, the web's most popular, independent entertainment website known for its expert reviews and exhaustive coverage of the film, television and gaming industries. The acquisition is a first for Gateway Media, which operates nine websites of its own, including two (Suggest and Clipd) that, like CinemaBlend, also cover celebrity news and TV and movie culture.

Gabe Douek, CEO of Gateway Media, said CinemaBlend fits perfectly into Gateway Media’s existing lineup and represents the type of business the company intends to target as it continues to expand its online reach.

“The addition of CinemaBlend, alongside Suggest and Clipd, makes Gateway Media one of the top online sources for movie and entertainment news with a monthly reach of nearly 40 million dedicated fans of TV and film,” said Douek.

CinemaBlend boasts more than 19 million, unique monthly visitors and has a dedicated social media following of more than two million people. The suburban Portland-based company has a team of 10 full-time staffers and a stable of committed freelancers from around the nation. Douek said Gateway Media is excited to incorporate CinemaBlend’s talented team.

Located in St. Louis, Gateway Media has grown from fewer than 20 employees when it was formed in January 2013 to some 50 full-time employees today. Each month the company’s websites bring in some 100 million unique visitors. BrainJet, Gateway Media’s most popular destination, is a Quantcast Top 100 site. In May, Gateway Media’s took home the 2015 Webby Award for Best Food & Drink Website.
