PV Media Group, an online marketing company, has entered into a joint venture with Breaking News Network, Inc., securing as a domain name one of the most valuable and highly searched search terms in online news, BreakingNews.com.
â€œPerhaps the most exciting component of BreakingNews.com is the domain name itself,â€ PV Media Group CEO Steve Rosenberg says. â€œInstantly securing a highly trafficked domain name like this, encompassing a term that has become such a significant part of the global vernacular, holds tremendous value for advertisers seeking prime online real estate with guaranteed traffic.â€
Rosenberg has named newspaper veteran James McDonald, the companyâ€™s VP of corporate sales and development, to serve as president-CEO of the joint venture, which aims to create a unique online social news community.
“BreakingNews.com will be designed to bring about a more informed global news conversation in both open and closed communities. Its posts offer readers coverage from every vantage point. They can also share a variety of unique widgets and tools, including some that we will add soon, that offer greater insight into the news than typical aggregation sites,â€ McDonald said.
By offering multiple perspectives on significant breaking stories and news eventsâ€”aggregated from the media, firsthand blog posts, pod- and video-casts, news buzz from around the web, opinion polls and commentsâ€”users can make instantly informed decisions based on verified information posted 24/7.
