When we launched OZY, we had a big idea.Instead of bringing you yet another news site pulling together the latest stories from across the Web, we wanted to give you something better. We wanted to give you a news site you actually loved.From the start, we promised only original content, focused not simply on where the world is but, more importantly, where the world is going. And every morning, we set out to profile the people, places, trends and technology that are ahead of their time and worthy of yours.
Since our launch, more than 200 OZY stories have been at least three to six months ahead of their coverage in other major media outlets. And our audience has grown to 10 million monthly site visitors, along with millions more who enjoy OZY through our partners — including NPR, CNN, USA TODAY, Huffington Post, PBS NewsHour, MSN and our friends at Axel Springer.
Today, OZY is no longer just an idea. It’s proof that with the right team, the right design and the right mission, news can be edgy and educational, informative and inspiring — all at the same time.
