Established in 2009, TheGrio has been a premier news organization for the urban community for delivering content to its online community. Rolling out has been the source for national and local lifestyle and entertainment news for more than 15 years, maintaining both print and digital publications.
“The minority-owned network will provide digital, mobile, and video scale for reaching African American audiences that companies want to authentically connect with. The alliance will also provide cultural insights and data,” said Munson Steed, president and CEO, Steed Media Group and RollingOut Digital Ad Network.
“TheGrio is proud to join efforts with RollingOut. This partnership not only allows us to better serve our users with the quality content they have come to expect from our brands but also presents a one-stop shop for advertisers looking to reach America’s most influential demographic, the urban millennial, in an authentic and effective way,” said David A. Wilson, theGrio’s co-founder and executive editor.
TheGrio and RollingOut will produce exclusive investigative pieces and offer exclusive 2016 campaign coverage, community information, technology coverage, and highlight issues affecting the African American community. The network’s sales team will represent both media properties as well as other targeted sites reaching young, urban professional content consumers who access these sites daily for news on fashion, politics, social justice, celebrities, art and more.
Rolling out is also adding a new content studio to its offering to provide targeted and engaging content that can be supported through brand partnerships. Located in its Atlanta headquarters, the studio will begin production on serialized original video content and newscasts in partnership with TheGrio.
Rolling out offers hyper-localization of original content given its print and online platforms with newspaper distribution in 19 cities across the country. Rolling out will continue to provide amplification opportunities for brands through the network including signature events and custom content.
