Vox Media

Vox Media is one of the fastest growing online publishers, focused on the sports, personal technology and gaming categories.  Vox is solving the problem of developing high-value digital journalism, storytelling and brand advertising at scale.  Its audiences are among the most engaged and affluent on the web.

Vox Media was named Digital Publisher of the Year by Digiday in 2013. SB Nation, its sports brand, boasts over 30mm users per month across 300 individually branded, fan-centric sports communities, each covering a specific professional or college team, league or sport.

In November 2011, Vox Media launched The Verge, which has quickly established itself as a category leader and the fastest growing site that covers technology. In October, Vox launched Polygon, a site dedicated to news and community for fans of gaming, anchored by an all-star roster of writers. All Vox Media sites are built on Chorus, its world-class proprietary publishing platform.

The company enjoys support from leading investors including Accel Partners, Comcast Interactive Capital, Khosla Ventures and Allen & Company.
